California has some of the most strict wage and hour laws in the nation to protect workers from employers who violate federal regulations under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). The state takes the law very seriously regarding how employees are classified, either exempt or nonexempt from overtime regulations. In addition, many employers incorrectly think that salaried workers can be required to work 50 and even 60 hours each week without overtime pay.

Is It Worth Hiring An Attorney?
Protecting your rights is always worth the legal fight. Under state and federal law, your employer cannot retaliate against you for reporting a violation or filing a complaint under whistleblower laws. In addition, any compensation your recover for back-pay and punitive damages will include additional money for legal fees. You will not only recover money for your own financial damages owed, you will be putting a stop to future illegal practices against other employees as well.
If You Are Not The Only Employee With This Legal Problem
If your employer is cheating you out of overtime pay or other protections covered under the FLSA, chances are there are other employees who are also being cheated as a matter of company policy. We have a successful record of representing groups of employees in class action lawsuits against employers who violate federal wage and hour laws. This is a complex area of state and federal law. We have the professional capacity and resources to be successful. There is typically additional compensation paid to the plaintiffs who initiate a class action lawsuit.
