Wage and Hour, Overtime

Bay Area Wage and Hour Attorney

Has your employer made you work off the clock? Are you required to show up at work a half hour before you are allowed to punch in? Are you forced to work through lunch and breaks?

Wage and Hour Disputes are governed by the California Labor Code, the federal Fair Labor Standard Act (FLSA) as well as other state and federal law. Included in the FLSA are the procedures, conditions, stipulations, exemptions, and compliance of employment and labor laws, including wage and hour issues.

Salaried Employees - Misclassification

Many employers wrongly believe that paying their employees a salary will make that employee exempt (not-covered) by the Fair Labor Standards Act. Generally, even if a covered employee receives a salary, unless that employee is actually performing certain types of specified job duties, they will be entitled to receive overtime, even if their employer misclassifies them as “exempt.” Other employers try to cheat their workers out of overtime pay by wrongly claiming they are independent contractors when they are actually employees. This is very common in engineering, entertainment, and technology industry.
