Wage and Hour Overview

Wage and Hour Attorney Serving the Greater Los Angeles Area

Most wage and hour or overtime claims are covered under the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) or other California state regulations. These rules change frequently, and contain many exceptions, depending on the situation. Whether based on state or federal law, however, successful wage and hour claims generally allow an employee to recover back pay, plus his or her attorney’s fees and court costs. Find out more by contacting an employment lawyer at the Leichter Law Firm.

Rules for Documenting Your Time at Work. Is it Legal?

Does your employer make you work time off the clock? Are you required to show up at work a half hour before you are allowed to punch in? Are you forced to work through lunch and breaks? Our Los Angeles employment law attorneys know how to help. At the Leichter Law Firm, APC we have the skill and experience to stand up for the rights of California employees who are treated unlawfully at work. We pride ourselves on personal client service and our responsiveness to your wage and hour claim.

The following are guidelines to help you determine if you are not being fully compensated for your overtime work:

Employee Misclassification

Some employers attempt to get around wage and overtime laws by classifying employees as independent contractors or as exempt employees. If you are classified as a manager and perform little to no managerial tasks, contact Los Angeles employment law attorney Aryeh Leichter today. We handle class-action lawsuits in which a number of employees have been similarly affected by an employer's violation of wage-and-hour laws.

Contact a Los Angeles Wage and Hour Attorney

If you believe that your employer has committed violations of the wage and hour laws, you don’t have to file an EEOC claim as you would in a typical discrimination case. Instead, you can hire a private attorney and file suit as soon as you discover the violation. If other people at your company have also been denied overtime, meals or breaks, you may be able to file a special type of FLSA class action lawsuit. Call the Leichter Law Firm at 213-381-6557 or email us today for a confidential consultation.
