Representing Employees Who were Denied Their Rightful Wages and Overtime Pay

California has numerous labor laws that aim to ensure employees in our state receive the proper pay for the hours they work. Employers are expected to strictly comply with wage and hour laws, or they can be held liable for unpaid wages to employees. Many employees are unsure whether they are owed unpaid wages, and if you are in this situation, you should never hesitate to contact an unpaid wage and overtime lawyer in Los Angeles who can evaluate your case. Call Martin & Bontrager, APC today.

Wage and Hour Violations

There are many different ways an employer can deny an employee of their rightful pay. Some of the more common include:

  • Minimum wage violations – California has one of the highest statewide minimum wage thresholds in the United States. As the minimum wage increases, many employers try to avoid paying employees the full amount they deserve. They may miscalculate hours or refuse to pay for time setting up or cleaning up. This type of violation is especially common among tip-based employees.
  • Denial of overtime rates – A large part of the workforce is entitled to time-and-a-half overtime rates for any hours they work over 40 in a week or eight in a day. However, there are many ways employers try to get around paying this higher rate, which can deny workers a substantial amount of money.
