Skilled Handling Of Complex Wage And Hour Cases
In California, there are strict regulations regarding meal and rest periods, the minimum wage and the payment of wages, what information your pay stub should contain, overtime and commissions. Yet certain companies routinely violate these laws. Some expect nonexempt employees to work through their lunch breaks. Others force employees to take unpaid rest breaks. And in some instances, employers expect employees to open and close the business during unpaid time.

Why Misclassification Of Worker Status Is So Important
Some companies try to bypass wage and hour laws by treating workers as managerial employees. Yet such misclassifications regarding job status that deprive workers of fair wages are illegal.
If employers force you and/or co-workers to work off-the-clock due to an incorrect employment classification, this may entitle you to unpaid overtime and benefits. The employment law lawyers at Brenes Law Group understand what steps to take to obtain for you the correct amount of earned compensation.
