Wage and Overtime Dispute Lawyers in Southern California – Protection Law Group, LLP

State & Federal Laws set forth the guidelines with which employers must comply with regards to employee compensation. At Protection Law Group, we have successfully represented numerous clients in a broad range of Wage & Overtime disputes arising from but not limited to: Employment Misclassification Lunch or Dinner Breaks and Rest Breaks Off the Clock Disputes Overtime Disputes Failure to Pay Employees in a Timely Manner Refusal to Pay Earned Overtime Failure to Pay Employees Earned Wages / Salary Unreimbursed Work Expenses Wage earners must receive no less than minimum wage for all hours worked. They are also required to receive overtime pay as follows: Time & a half – shifts exceeding eight hours and the 1st eight hours worked on 7th consecutive day Double time – shifts exceeding twelve hours and for every hour worked beyond 1st 8 hours on 7th consecutive day If your job requires you to work non-traditional shifts such as four 10 hour days in a week followed by three days off, you only begin earning overtime wages if they work more than 40 hours per week. Workers who have earned overtime wages must be paid those wages on the next regular payday. Failure to adhere to these requirements may result in the employer being required to pay penalties and other monetary damages set forth by law. Additional issues arise regarding overtime if the employee’s status has been improperly misclassified as either salaried worker (exempt employee) or as independent contractor. Because exempt employees and independent contractors are not generally entitled to overtime, employers may face substantial fines and pay all back overtime due when misclassification takes place. Those hired on as independent contractors may also be entitled to reimbursement for benefits provided to regular employees. If you are terminated by your employer, you must immediately be given your final paycheck, including payment for all vacation hours that have not been used. Those who voluntarily quit their jobs but don’t give any advance notice must receive their final check within three calendar days. Employees who provide a minimum of three days prior notice of their intent to quit must be given their last check on their final day of employment.  Finally, employers are required under the law to comply with statutes governing meal (lunch or dinner depending on the shift) breaks and rest breaks. Employers are expressly forbidden from preventing workers from taking these breaks or requiring their employees to work during these breaks. If these laws are violated, the employer may be required to pay penalties as well as provide additional monetary compensation.
