Wage and hour and Labor Code violations including unpaid wages, unpaid overtime wages, late pay, bounced pay checks, missed meal breaks, missed rest breaks, failure to provide accurate pay stubs, refusal to provide water, refusal to provide a chair, failure to maintain accurate employee records, premium pay for working split shifts, reporting pay where less than half the scheduled shift is worked, and similar claims.
Wage and hour and Labor code violations including unpaid wages, late pay, bounced pay checks, unpaid overtime, missed meal breaks and rest breaks, show up or reporting pay, split shift pay, failure to provide drinking water, unpaid vacation time, wait time penalties, record keeping failures, pay stub violations, reimbursements, uniform deductions, forced purchase of employer food or products, tip pooling or stealing, unfair time shaving or time rounding, failure to provide a chair, protests of unsafe work conditions, piece rate claims falling under the minimum wage, misclassification as salary employee, misclassification as contractor.
There are also advantages that an employer may make use of under the law. Employers may use meal waivers under certain circumstances, and non-profit employers may even pay less than minimum wage where they have an intern who meets the standards for an “intern”. Employers may also apply to the Department of Labor for an exemption from minimum wage requirements where the purpose is for education. For employers, we also can help you defend on any of the above types of wage and hour claims. We can help you formulate employee manuals, provide assistance in responding to Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (“EEOC”) and Department of Fair Employment and Housing (“DFEH”) investigations, and defend charges brought by the Division of Labor Standards Enforcement (“DLSE”) or the Department of Labor (“DOL”).(The above is only meant for informative purposes and is not legal advice).
