If you have answered “yes” to any of the above questions, your employer may have violated the laws regarding the governing wages, hours and other working conditions in California. We have found that many California employers do not understand (or simply disregard) their obligations under these laws.
If your employer has violated the Wage and Hour laws, you can either file a wage claim with the Division of Labor Standards Enforcement (“DLSE”) or file a lawsuit in court.
Labor Code Section 98.6 makes it illegal for a California employer to retaliate against an employee for filing a wage and hour claim.
Hubbs Disability Law has successfully handled many wage and hour claims. If you believe you may have such a claim, please call us for a free consultation at (800) 883-3492, or fill out our contact form.
