Is Your Employer Withholding Wages And Other Compensation?
California and federal regulations dictate wage and hour regulations for all employers. These laws exist to protect the rights of workers and to ensure that they are properly classified and being paid fairly for their work. However, many employers either choose to ignore these laws or simply do not understand that they are violating them.
These infractions include:
- Failing to pay minimum wage to employees
- Failing to pay overtime to nonexempt employees
- Misclassifying exempt versus nonexempt employees
- Denying workers legally allowed breaks
- Making hourly employees work off the clock
Regardless of your employer’s intentions, if it has violated a wage and hour law, you have a legal right to file a lawsuit.
