The California Wage and Hour Laws regarding overtime are really very simple, but many employers often take advantage of their employees’ lack of understanding of these simple guidelines. Employees may fear repercussions or retaliation from the employer in some way, perhaps even termination. But you have rights.
Whitehead Employment Law represents employee claims involving the following types of issues:
- Minimum Wage Violations
- Unpaid Daily and Weekly Overtime
- Failure to Provide Meal Breaks or Rest Periods
- Breach of Employment Contracts
- Misclassification of Employees as “Exempt”
- Miscalculations of Hourly Wages, Salaries, Commissions, Bonuses, and other Type of Payment
If you have not received proper compensation for all of your hard work, then your employer needs to pay you the money that you deserve. Employee claims of California Wage and Hour Laws violations are often settled rather quickly once you hire an experienced and knowledgeable attorney. Whitehead Employment Law will vigorously fight for your rights and ensure a speedy recovery of your unpaid wages and penalties. We want to put that money in your pocket as soon as possible.
If it’s determined that you are a victim of unlawful workplace discrimination, we can help you in multiple ways.
# 1 We will Make It Stop. If we are retained early enough, we can sometimes convince your employer to intervene on your behalf. The offending supervisor may be fired or relocated, or if you desire, you may be moved to a different location. We’ll help you through the process, and make sure your employer follows the law throughout.
#2 Negotiate an Exit. In many discrimination cases, our clients simply want “out.” We can often negotiate an exit package that will protect your reputation as a good employee, protect your access to unemployment benefits, negotiate potential severance options and your ability to get a new job.
#3 File a Discrimination Lawsuit. If your employer is not willing to cooperate and negotiate an out-of-court resolution, a lawsuit may be in your best interest. We will discuss with you all the risks and possible benefits involved so that you will know what to expect, and decide whether or not you want to sue your employer.
One thing you CAN be sure of, Whitehead Employment Law will continuously fight for your rights every step of the way.
