Employment Law

California employees are entitled to fair treatment by their employer, enforced by the protections provided by federal and state law. Glynn Law Group aggressively represents California employees who have claims against their employers. Examples of potential claims include one or more of the following:

Unpaid wages – Shorting an employee his or her wages happens more often than one would think. Failure to pay wages occurs in many forms. California employees who believe they have not been paid all wages due may have a claim for unpaid wages.

Unpaid overtime – California employees are required to be paid by their employer for all overtime worked and at the rate specified by California law.

  • Misclassification – Employers are not allowed to misclassify a worker as an independent contractor in order to avoid overtime or other pay due to that worker under an employee classification.
  • Meal break and rest period violations – California employees are required to be provided an uninterrupted thirty (30) minute meal break for every five hours of work and a ten (10) minute rest break for every four (4) hours, or greater part thereof, worked.
  • Wrongful termination – Under California and federal law, an employee may not be fired for reasons. Employees may not be fired for reporting the illegal activity of a co-worker or employer.  California employees also may not be fired because of race, sex, disability, national origin, or religion.
  • Unpaid commissions – Many California employees are paid through commissions, sometimes on a commissions-only basis.  Commissions earned are considered wages under California law. Employees have rights against employers who fail to pay commissions earned by the employee.

These are just a few examples of the types of claims Glynn Law Group litigates on behalf of California employees. The law firm represents individual employees as well as groups of hundreds, and even thousands, of employees in class action cases.
