Have you experienced pay and overtime issues at your place of employment?

What pay and overtime issues mean


California employment law protects the fair pay, overtime, and breaks you are entitled to. If your employer isn’t following the law, you may be able to recover back pay and other monetary compensation.

There are many ways an employer can violate your rights as a worker. These include failing to fully pay you on time, or failing to track and pay your overtime, or even failing to relieve you of work duties during breaks.

Employers also violate the law when they misclassify employees as independent contractors or as “exempt” workers when they are actually regular, hourly, non-exempt workers. Even injuries from an accident on the job can lead to pay issues.

If any of these things happen to you, contact us now, and we can provide you with legal help on a range of pay and overtime issues.
