Were You A Victim Of Wage And Hour Violations In California?
Applying Employment Laws To Your Case
California employment laws dictate minimum wage pay and overtime wages for employees. The state also has strict requirements when it comes to employers documenting and maintaining payroll and other employment issues.
Our lawyers have years of experience handling all types of wage and hour claims, including issues pertaining to:
- Overtime pay
- Overtime pay for salespeople
- Employee misclassification (misclassification as exempt or independent contractors)
- Computer professional exemption
- Meal and rest period requirements
- Time off requirements
We know how state and federal wage and hour laws apply to your case. We will work hard to identify any violations so you can file a claim to recover the pay and benefits you deserve.
What If I Don’t Have Records? Do I Still Have A Claim?
You still have a case even if your employer failed to maintain accurate records, including keeping timesheets. Your employer is required by law to create and maintain accurate records of when you worked. Your employer is also required by law to provide you with a pay stub that has accurate information on how many hours you worked and the hourly rate you will be paid.
If you did not receive accurate pay stubs, or your time records were altered by your employer, you will still be able to take legal action to get the pay you earned. In such instances, you can rely on other evidence, including your testimony, to establish the hours you worked in reasonable estimates. The burden then shifts to your employer to prove your estimates are unreasonable.
