Skilled Wage And Overtime Violation Lawyer

The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and California law set forth guidelines with which employers must comply regarding employee compensation. These laws cover the following compensation-related issues:

  • Employee misclassification
  • Exempt (salaried) vs. nonexempt (wage) status
  • Independent contractor misclassification
  • Meal breaks
  • Minimum wage
  • Overtime requirements
  • Rest breaks
  • Timely compensation
  • Unpaid overtime
  • Unpaid wages
  • Unreimbursed work expenses
  • Working off the clock

Under the law, all nonexempt employees must be paid according to minimum wage guidelines for every hour that is worked. In addition to regular hours, wage earners are also entitled to time and a half when they work more than eight hours in a shift. Double time is due for each hour worked beyond 12 hours during a single shift.

If an employee is terminated, they are entitled to their final check at the time of termination. This must include all unused paid vacation time.
