Wage & Hour Violations in Orange County, CA
Taking Action for Unpaid Wages, Overtime, & Other Responsibilities
Increasingly, employers are asking more and more from their employees.
This includes working harder, and working long. While this is not necessarily
a bad thing, there are unfortunately those employers that do not abide
by the laws that have been outlined in the state. According to the California
Labor Code, as well as under the Federal Fair Labor Standards Act, there
are specific regulations on how employers will pay and care for their
employees - and these unfortunately can often be violated.
Speak with our Orange County injury lawyer today if you are a victim of
a wage or hour violation.
Overview of Wage and Hour Violations
The three main categories that are most typically violated include unpaid
wages, unpaid overtime and a complete failure to meet the standard requirements
for the minimum wage. For example, an employer might fail to pay wages
with solid checks that are paid on a regular timeline. Another area of
employee law that is often violated is that of unpaid overtime.
Many employees are confused about whether or not they are eligible for
overtime wages and therefore do not push the subject. The truth is that
many employees are misclassified as being exempt from overtime when they
are, in fact, eligible and should be receiving just pay. This includes
pay for time spent over the mandatory eight hours and for lunches that
were missed for work activities.
Other common wage and hour violations including the following:
- Failing to offer an uninterrupted hour for lunch every day
- Failing to provide regular breaks for every four hours of work
- Failing to provide a second meal break for spending over ten hours at work
- Failing to supply all information necessary on paystubs
