Wage And Hour Violations: Ensuring Employees Are Properly Paid
Employees have every right to expect that they will be paid promptly and according to the law. However, many employers don’t pay their employees in accordance with state law or federal laws. Even large employers have been known to brazenly commit a wide range of wage and hour violations against employees. In some cases, workers are not paid for overtime. In other instances, employees are forced to buy their own work uniforms. And in many cases, workers are not receiving the meal and rest periods they are entitled to according to law. These are all illegal actions by the employer, and many employees feel there is nothing they can do about it. The good news is, you can.
At The Law Offices of Daniel Feder, our attorney is dedicated to standing up for the rights of employees in California. Together, we will fight to hold your employer accountable while working to ensure that you and your co-workers receive the pay to which you are entitled.
Common Violations Of Wage And Employment Laws
Wage and hour violations can take many forms, including:
- Failing to provide meal and rest breaks
- Failing to pay overtime
- Misclassification of employees, such as paying a worker a salary instead of by the hour
- Minimum wage violations
- Unpaid commissions and bonuses
- Forcing employees to buy their own uniforms
Employees are also protected by the law if they choose to complain about a workplace violation. For example, if you complain about unpaid overtime and are fired for doing so, you will have a strong claim for wrongful termination. Our lawyer can help explore all of the legal options available to you.
We Handle Both Individual And Class Action Cases
While individual cases do occur, most wage and hour violations will impact a broad swath of employees. If this is the case, we may be able to pursue a class action on the behalf of you and your co-workers. We have handled dozens of class action cases, often holding employers liable for millions of dollars in damages. If you choose to lead a class action, you can collect an incentive fee in addition to damages to help compensate you for the time and energy you have spent to represent your fellow workers.
