Wage and hour claims may help address illegal actions

On Behalf of | May 24, 2018 | Wage and Hour Claims

Fair wages and proper compensation is what many people work for. Often, they must work long, hard hours in order to provide for their families and meet other needs, so whenever something seems off with their pay, it can be concerning. Unfortunately, some employers do not properly pay their workers, and it is often up to the employees to pursue their rightful compensation through wage and hour claims.

Taking legal action can seem intimidating, but it is often necessary when mistreatment and violations of the law have occurred. California readers may be interested in one out-of-state woman who chose to follow this course of action after not receiving her proper pay. The woman was a nail technician at a beauty salon where she claims she was required to clean bathrooms and arrive to work early without being paid for those actions.

The class action lawsuit also states that the workers were not properly paid for the hours they spent on their regular work duties. Legal representation for the woman went as far as to say that the employers picked which hours they felt like paying their workers. The owners of the salon stated that they were unaware of these allegations until the lawsuit, and they do not believe any wrongdoing took place.

People do not have to stand by and have their rights violated by employers. If California workers believe that they have not been appropriately compensated for their hours worked, they may want to gain more information on wage and hour claims. Speaking with knowledgeable attorneys could help interested parties gain thorough evaluations of their cases.
