New California Test For Employee vs. Independent Contractor

The California Supreme Court adopted a new legal standard that will make it more difficult for businesses to misclassify workers as independent contractors. This will directly affect the trucking and transportation industry as well as the gig economy (e.g., Uber, Grubhub, Bellhops, Caviar, Dolly, DoorDash).

Wage theft can affect numerous workers at once

When California workers have monetary goals they want to reach, they may scrape and save every dime that they earn. However, they may notice that it is taking longer to reach their goals than they had hoped. In some cases, they may simply face more expenses than expected, but in other instances, they may not be receiving their full compensation due to wage theft.

Wage and hour claims may be necessary to fight wage theft

Holding down a job is how most people earn their income. Because these jobs can sometimes seem tedious and often thankless, most individuals seek their pay checks as the reward for putting in their time and effort. However, when workers are not properly compensated, the improper pay can seem insulting and give cause for wage and hour claims

Misclassification may lead to wage and hour claims

Going to work, performing duties and earning a paycheck is a common routine. Working hard is generally how most California residents earn a living that allows them to provide for themselves and their families. Even if they do not feeling that they are working their dream jobs, they may still appreciate the ability to generate a useful income. However, when an employer fails to properly compensate workers, wage and hour claims may become necessary.

Wage and hour claims may draw needed attention to wrongdoing

Unfortunately, many California residents may find themselves cheated out of fair compensation at some point in their lives. The incident may come about due to unclear agreements or simply because of unjust actions. Even individuals who have steady employment could find themselves needing to make wage and hour claims due to not being properly compensated for their services.

Unpaid wages could lead to wage and hour claims

Not receiving proper compensation for services can understandably make many workers feel unsettled. California residents often work hard and put in long hours to gain an income, and losing out on earned money can make life more difficult. When workers know that their employer has not properly compensated them, they may need to take legal action in order to receive that unpaid money through wage and hour claims.

California workers file wage and hour claims against resort

When employees suffer mistreatment on the job, it could come in various forms. Discrimination, harassment and wage theft are all common injustices that numerous workers face every day. Because the income made often allows individuals to provide for themselves and their families, not being properly compensated for work can seem especially difficult to handle. Luckily, parties may be able to take action through wage and hour claims.
