Wage and Hour Disputes
Has your employer not been paying you for all of the work you have done? It is an unfortunate reality that this happens all too often. Employers find ways, both subtle and overt, that keep a portion of an employee’s hard earned wages in their own pocket. We have the experience and skills necessary to help employees fight for the full income they have earned.
Some of the more common ways that employers take advantage of their employees include:
- Misclassification as exempt from receiving overtime pay (an easy way to avoid having to pay someone overtime is by incorrectly asserting they should receive a salary rather than an hourly wage)
- Unpaid vacation
- Being forced to work while taking meals or breaks
- Being denied meals and breaks
- Not being paid for preparation time before a shift start or cleanup time following a shift
The California Labor Code and Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) are two powerful legal tools that can help us recover the full income you should have received from your employer.
