California workers are protected by state and federal laws requiring employers to pay workers all wages they are entitled to. If your employer is not paying you the wages you are entitled to, you may have grounds to file a wage and hour dispute. Not sure where to start? Lipeles Law Group is here to help.
What is a Wage and Hour Dispute?
A wage and hour dispute is a claim that workers can file with California’s Division of Labor Standards Enforcement. Workers can file wage and hour claims related to:
- Withheld wages
- Failure to pay you overtime
- Failure to meet minimum wage requirements
- Misclassifying you to pay you less
- You are not paid for all services rendered
- Paid leave or benefits are not upheld
- Business expenses are not reimbursed appropriately
If you have experienced one of these issues and have brought it to your employer’s attention with no resolution, you need to get legal guidance. You may have grounds to file a wage and hour claim with the Division of Labor Standards Enforcement, which can help you get the wages you are owed.
