Unpaid Wage and Hour Law

Wage And Hour Law – California

wage and hour law California overtime compensationMany California employees are not being justly compensated for their work. Our attorneys are aware that some of the most common issues that arise in wage and hour law disputes involve:

Unpaid wages — Harsh penalties are in place for California employers who fail to pay their workers. This includes paying a worker the balance of wages earned immediately upon being terminated and within 72 hours of the worker leaving the company.

Overtime and misclassification — Workers are either classified as hourly or salaried, depending on their job description, daily responsibilities, and role within the company. Many employers list workers as salaried, paying a lump sum, no matter how much time was served. Salaried workers, however, are not commonly eligible for overtime. If you should be classified as an hourly employee or worker, you could be missing significant compensation for time you work over 40 hours a week or 8 hours per day. In addition, double time could apply over 12 hours per day in some cases.

Reimbursement and vacation time — In addition to the above, there is strict protocol for how employees are to be reimbursed for certain expenses such as cell phone usage, mileage, uniforms, etc. In many cases, this includes vacation time that has been accrued on hours worked and must be paid out if the employee leaves the company.

Employee Unpaid Wage Issues in California

eeoc violation | Unpaid wage issuesCalifornia employers in cities like San Francisco and Los Angeles sometimes violate employment laws resulting in unpaid wage issues for employees. Employment law takes into account unpaid wage issues and related problems such as: failure to pay the minimum wage, intentional employee misclassification, sexual harassment, wrongful termination, or unfair employment practices that discriminate.

First and foremost, an employee must report the violation. The appropriate state or federal regulatory authority might include the EEOC, FEHC, or a labor union representative. A labor lawyer at our firm can represent you in administrative hearings before the EEOC or FEHC. We also commonly represent employees in mediation or arbitration hearings, or through litigation, if that becomes necessary to protect your rights.

One of our experienced California lawyers can help you understand your rights under both the federal and California employment laws. Employment and labor laws set the legal parameters for employment contracts, equal employment opportunities, wages and hours, health and safety, and employee benefits, along with union organization and collective bargaining.  If you need someone to stand up for you against the unfair practices of your employer (i.e., denied wages,  break periods, discrimination,  sexually harassed, etc.), Kingsley & Kingsley has extensive experience handling such employment law related claims.
