Wage & Hour Litigation

Enforcing your right to a fair, transparent paycheck.

Wage & Hour Litigation

Our experienced wage and hour attorneys will enforce your right to unpaid wages.

Non-exempt employees are entitled to compensation for all hours worked, meal and rest breaks, overtime pay, and transparent paychecks. Employers who break California's wage and hour laws are liable for your unpaid wages as well as hefty penalties.

Our attorneys are experienced in obtaining relief for employees who are wrongfully denied earned wages. In just two years, we have achieved the following results for victims of wage theft:

  • $1.25 million settlement for unpaid rest period premiums and off-the-clock work
  • $700,000 settlement on behalf of warehouse workers who weren't paid for time spent in security
  • $500,000 settlement for mill workers whose time was rounded to the nearest quarter-hour
  • $250,000 settlement for resident hotel manager who worked thousands of hours without pay

If you are paid on an hourly basis, or if you believe you are wrongly classified as an exempt employee, you may have a claim for unpaid wages. Contact us today for a free consultation.
