- 1. Not paying you at all -- perhaps because the employer does not have a project or sufficient work for you;
- 2. Underpaying you -- each job has a minimum wage requirement based on the profession and location, which is known as the "prevailing wage";
- 3. Failing to provide you comparable benefits, such as health insurance; and/or
- 4. Making unfair deductions from your wages for expenses like the costs of the visa, rent, etc.
