Unpaid Wages, Overtime, & Break Claims

You work hard and deserve to be fully compensated for your time. Many employers try to skirt their responsibility under California and federal wage and hour laws by shortchanging their employees of their full wages. The result of this unlawful business practice is that employers receive excess labor without having to pay for it.


You have rights that protect you against such abuse. Some of the most common wage and hour violations include:


  • Failing to pay state or federal minimum wage;

  • Failing to pay overtime wages;

  • Failing to pay meal and rest breaks;

  • Classifying you as exempt or salaried when you should be classified as "non-exempt" or hourly, meaning that your employer does not compensate you for overtime

  • Classifying you as an independent contractor to avoid paying you benefits


You should not let your employer cheat you of the compensation you earned. If you believe your employer is taking advantage of you and is not paying you what you are owed, contact our office to speak with an attorney who is knowledgeable and passionate about worker's rights.
