Under California overtime laws, employees must be paid a premium for work in excess of eight (8) hours per day or forty (40) hours per week. An experienced California overtime lawyer can help you obtain the employee overtime pay to which you are entitled. An overtime lawyer experienced with wage laws can offer guidance to employees in cases of unpaid overtime or minimum wages. Federal wage and hour laws stipulate that employees have rights to a fair wage. Often, however, California employers neglect their duty to furnish employees with the payment of overtime compensation the employee has earned.
Wage and hour laws were created to prevent employers from shorting California employees of their earned wages, including overtime. As a California employee, you may be unaware of the proper overtime wages to which you are entitled. Employers may misclassify employees as independent contractors in order to avoid the proper payment of overtime pay. Where California employees are misclassified as independent contractors, they may be wrongfully denied pay for overtime hours worked, as well as meal breaks and rest periods.
