Wage And Overtime Claims In California

Loyal, hardworking California workers should not be victimized by unpaid overtime, stolen wages or poor accounting by the businesses that employ them.

Are you an employee who is struggling to overcome the setbacks of unpaid overtime and working "off the clock" in Greater Los Angeles or elsewhere in California? Are you a salesperson who has been denied the sales commissions you are owed? Has your employer refused to reimburse you for work-related expenses?

If so, you may be able to claim compensation. At the Law Offices of Reisner & King LLP, we vigorously represent employees who have not received the wages, overtime pay and other compensation they are owed. Our firm-wide knowledge, skills, client commitment and personal service have made positive differences in the lives of employees whose rights were being violated in the workplace.

We want to help you obtain all of the compensation you are entitled to receive. Call us today at 818-981-0901 for a free consultation with an experienced wage and hour claims lawyer.

Your Rights Under The Law

Federal and California employment laws provide many protections for employees when it comes to wage and overtime claims:

Overtime — In California, employees classified as "nonexempt" are entitled to 1.5 times the hourly rate of pay for hours worked in excess of 40 hours per week. You may also be eligible for overtime pay for hours worked in excess of eight hours per day.

Misclassification of employees and contractors — Some employers try to minimize their labor costs by classifying employees as "exempt." Others treat workers as contractors when they actually meet the definition of "nonexempt" employees.

Meals and rest breaks — Employers that require employees to work through meal and rest breaks or refuse to pay employees for preparation or cleanup time may be held liable for wages for those hours.
