Misclassification: Reclaim What’s Yours

Share Post:

Proper worker classification is a fundamental pillar in the workplace, essential to ensure the rights and benefits that correspond to each employee. However, intentional or unintentional misclassification can have serious consequences, affecting wages, tax requirements, and workers’ benefits. At Lipeles Law Group, we understand the complexity of this situation and want to reclaim what rightfully belongs to you.

What is worker misclassification?

Misclassification occurs when an employer wrongly categorizes an employee as an independent contractor, thus avoiding payment for overtime hours, benefits, and labor protections. This practice is not only unfair but also illegal, violating the fundamental rights of the worker.

Consequences of misclassification

Wages and overtime hours: If you are misclassified as an independent contractor, you may miss out on compensation for overtime hours.

Unfair termination: Misclassification can lead to unfair terminations under the pretext that standard labor protections do not apply.

Lost benefits and protections: Social security, health insurance, and other benefits may be denied due to misclassification.

Reclaiming what’s yours

Workers in California who have been misclassified may be entitled to recover compensation for income not received due to their incorrect classification. Additionally, employers who engage in this practice may face penalties from the California Labor Commission.
