Wage and Hour Cases

Wage and hour cases are brought by employees who are not being compensated in accordance with state and/or federal labor law.  Many employers either unknowingly or purposefully violate overtime wage laws enacted under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) or the California Labor Code by improperly designating their employees as "exempt" from overtime compensation.  In some cases, employees are forced to work off the clock without compensation, meal or rest breaks and often in violation of federal and state minimum wage laws.  Other claims involve employers' failures to pay proper commissions to their salespeople.  If you are involved in any type of dispute with your employer involving your pay, we can help.  

Workplace Retaliation For Questioning Your Employer's Wage and Hour Policies

Engaging in retaliatory conduct against an employee for making a wage and hour complaint is unlawful under federal and state employment law.  Illegal retaliation includes workplace demotion, suspension, termination, discipline, reduction in wages, negative employment evaluations, changes in job duties or responsibilities, transfer, and/or creation of a hostile work environment.  If you believe you have been subjected to any of these actions for complaining about your employer's wage and hour practices, you need a good employment law attorney.  We provide representation to individuals in the Los Angeles area and surrounding communities who have been subjected to retaliation on the job.

How an Employment Lawyer Can Get You Compensation and Justice

California's Whistleblower Act affords protection to employees who have been subjected to adverse employment actions for protesting their employers' refusal to pay overtime wages or provide meal or rest breaks.  If you are the victim of unlawful retaliation, you have the right to recover compensatory damages and penalties for the harm suffered as a result of your employer's illegal conduct.  At the Leichter Law Firm, we represent employees at all levels.  No matter what your position, our experienced employment law firm is ready to discuss your employment law matter and eager to help.
