There are many forms of underpayment of fair wages. Here are a few examples:
                1) The employer does not pay as was contractually agreed.
                2) The employer has forced the employee to work without rest or meal breaks
                3) The employer pays less than the legal mandatory hourly rate
                4) The employer pays less than the mandatory hourly rate for overtime hours. 
                5) The employer has taken a part of the employee's wages inappropriately.
                6) The employer wrongfully misclassifies the employee's status as exempt.

We represent employees in state and federal courts and also before the California Labor Commission. When we meet a prospective client, we first go over the claim with them to determine that it is a valid claim, and whether the employer did in fact fail to pay properly. If the employer has not paid correctly, we may first make a suggestion to the employer to make up the mistaken amount. If that does not produce results, a claim may be filed with the Labor Commission or in state or federal court. Once a claim is filed, we represent the case to conclusion. When Labor Code violations occur it is necessary for those adversely affected to speak out  without fear of retaliation. 

WE EVALUATE EVERY CASE TO DETERMINE FAIR COMPENSATION, AND THEN WE WORK TO GET IT.

​WE OFFER PERSONALIZED SOLUTIONS, AND CLIENT APPROVAL BEFORE FINAL SETTLEMENT

WAGE & HOUR VIOLATIONS



The California Labor Code gives employees the right receive fair wages, meaning both at least the minimum legal wage, and also as contractually agreed with their employer, to work and meal breaks, to overtime pay, to accommodations for disabilities, and numerous other benefits that are intended to provide appropriate workplace conditions. If an employer fails to provide the required workplace conditions, or does not pay as the law requires, the Labor Code calls for severe penalties and compensation.
