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
