Can a company have you work in a higher position within the company and not pay you? Also, can I request them to back pay me for the shifts I have done?
You must be paid for working. When reading the details it appears you are paid but have more responsibilities at the same pay level. You stated you are receiving less per hour so it appears you are an hourly employee. Many Manager positions are salary Exempt versus hourly non exempt. Exempt applies to overtime bu not exclusively. If you are hourly and working more hours then to the extent you exceed the weekly hour calculation or daily hour maximum you will be entitled to overtime as a non-exempt employee. This is a personal question in the sense you have to make a decision. One option is to approach your supervisor and request a raise for additional work. It would be helpful if we knew how many hours you work per day and per week as well as your responsibilities whether they include supervision etc. To the extent you were not paid properly the Labor Board or any attorney is an option. You are entitled to back pay if you were not properly paid but we don’t have any information on your pay. More information in reply will help us provide even a better answer.
