Litigating Against Employee Misclassifications
How your employer classifies you may seem unimportant — until you are denied overtime pay, workers’ compensation or another legally protected right enjoyed by full-time employees in Los Angeles and throughout Southern California. If you have been the victim of employee misclassification, you need forceful legal representation to get the wages and benefits you deserve.
The Law Offices of Reisner & King LLP‘s employment law attorneys represent workers who have suffered damages due to being misclassified as a contractor or part-time employee. Our firm only represents employees and we will work diligently to resolve your case positively. Call 818-981-0901 to speak with one of our lawyers today.
Am I An Employee Or Not?
Whether you should be classified as an employee or an independent contractor depends on many factors. Here are few questions we often ask our clients:
- Do you work for one employer exclusively, or do work for more than one company?
- Do you set your own work hours, or are you expected to work a set time period?
- Does a supervisor control your work duties and how you go about your job?
Whether you are being treated as an employee or a contract worker matters. Under California law, contractors are not entitled to:
- Minimum wage
- Overtime pay
- Workers’ compensation
- The right to join a union
- Unemployment insurance
You may not be aware of what your company has done until you try to invoke one of your rights as an employee. We will help you stand up for your rights in court if that is what it takes. We are always prepared to litigate an employment law dispute to verdict.
