North Hollywood Wage and Hour Attorney

Unfortunately, wage theft (when the employer refuses to pay an employee all money earned) is a continuing problem in California.  All California employees who work over eight hours in a day and/or forty hours in a week must receive overtime pay.  If you have worked overtime and not received proper compensation, your employer may have violated the law and you may be able to recover damages. 

California overtime laws are complicated but the idea behind them is not.  Almost all California employees are eligible for overtime pay.  An employer may wrongly classify employees as overtime exempt either because the employer doesn’t want pay employees overtime or the employer doesn’t understand the law.  Either way the employer has violated the law and injured employees may recover damages.

Employers often claim certain employees are overtime exempt because the employees receive a monthly salary instead of an hourly wage or because the employees’ job descriptions include some managerial or administrative duties.  That is not the law.  Whether an employee is overtime exempt is separate from how the employee is paid and depends on what the employee actually does every day, not his or her job description.
