It is black-letter law that employers must pay hourly workers for all of their time. But not doing so is the No. 1 reason why companies are sued by their employees, according to a Long Island, N.Y., attorney.

A number of other items on Robert Lipton's Top 10 list of reasons why employers are sued boil down to not listening to employees' concerns and bad decision-making by supervisors, sometimes because because they are arrogant or inadequately trained, according to Newsday.

Other red flags for likely litigation include claims that could involve a significant amount of lost work time, firing workers in violation of contract provisions and evaluating employees or warning them without learning enough specific information first.
