Wage & Hour
Are you working hard and not getting properly paid? If so, there are laws that protect you. When you work you give up valuable time. In exchange you expect fair compensation and that your employer plays by the rules. Unfortunately, there are some employers who bend or ignore the rules. Common employer wage and hour violations are: Denial of Meal and Rest Breaks Failure to pay Minimum Wage Failure to pay Overtime Misclassification as an Independent Contractor Misclassification as an Exempt Employee Unlawful Deductions from Paychecks Reporting Time Violations Failure to pay for Standby or On-Call Time Unlawful Tip Pooling or Unpaid Tips Failure to pay for Travel or Prep Time Failure to pay Commissions Uniform, Tools, and Equipment Violations Failure to Provide Accurate Payroll Statement Failure to Keep Accurate Time Records Since California and Federal wage laws are complex and constantly evolving, we keep abreast of changes in the law, the trends, and new approaches to wage and hour litigation. Knowing the law is not enough. We recognize that each client and case is unique. Therefore, we handle large and legally complex cases to cases as small as an individual employee who was denied a single pay check.
