Wage and hour violations occur when employers fail to comply with state and federal labor laws, denying employees their rightful wages and benefits. These violations can take many forms, including:
Has your employer refused to pay you overtime wages for working beyond the standard 40-hour workweek? Overtime pay is a legal entitlement for non-exempt employees, and if your employer has denied you this compensation, it constitutes a clear violation of labor laws.
Are you receiving less than the legally mandated minimum wage for your work? California has strict laws in place to protect workers from being underpaid. If you are earning less than the minimum wage, your employer is likely violating your rights.
Are you being denied meal and rest breaks as required by law? California law stipulates that employees must receive specific meal and rest breaks based on the length of their work shifts. If your employer denies you these essential breaks or pressures you to work through them, it is a violation of your rights.
Has your employer misclassified you as an independent contractor instead of an employee? Misclassification is a tactic used by some employers to avoid providing essential benefits and protections to workers. If you are performing the duties of an employee but treated as an independent contractor, it is a violation of labor laws.
Wage and hour violations not only impact your financial stability but also take a toll on your overall well-being. The consequences can be severe, including:
Unpaid wages, withheld overtime pay, and minimum wage violations can leave you struggling to make ends meet. The money you rightfully earned should not be withheld from you, and it is crucial to take action to recover what is owed to you.
