WAGE AND HOUR

California and Federal law both have strong public policy in favor of paying workers overtime wages, providing meal breaks and providing rest periods. This public policy is backed by laws providing for severe penalties in the form of waiting time and other penalties, interest, cost reimbursements, and attorneys’ fees.

According to a recent study, “wage and hour” litigation is the single most common form of litigation filed nationwide. It truly is a legal “battleground” between companies and their employees and is often filed on a “class action” basis. If you have questions, or wish to submit your case for a review, please take advantage of our FREE online case submission.

  • Are you entitled to overtime?
  • What if your employer told you that you were “exempt”?
  • Have you been provided with meal breaks?
  • Have you been provided with rest breaks?
  • What if you were mis-classified?
  • Can I be a lead plaintiff in a class action?

These are just some of the questions that you may have…
If you are a California resident we can represent you in your claims regardless of where the company is headquartered in the United States. Similarly, if you are located outside of California and the company is located inside California, we can represent you in your claims . Many times clients and potential clients mistakenly believe that they have no valid claims because they have been told that California is an “at will” employment state.
