Don't navigate situations of wage theft alone

A previous post on this blog talked about some tricks Los Angeles employers may use to deprive their lower paid, oftentimes hourly workers even the little bit of money they make.

For instance, some employers may blatantly just not pay their hourly workers, sometimes claiming financial hardship or relying on supposed offsets that an employee supposedly owes them.

In other cases, an employer may try to misuse employment classifications to claim that their workers are salaried or independent contractors in order to avoid paying minimum wages, overtime and the like, even though in all other respects, the employees are hourly workers and treated accordingly.

Finally, employers may by general company practice create a culture in which workers are often requested, or even ordered, to give away their time by working off of the clock.

All of these scenarios are against the laws of California and may violate federal laws and regulations as well. While it is a rare day when law enforcement gets involved in such cases, the law provides remedies in which a worker hurt by such unjust actions can get what he or she is owed and, often, a little extra simply to make up for the injustice they suffered.

Our law office can help a worker, no matter what his or her income is, to take action against their employer or former employer if the employer has illegally withheld wages. We can do so by filing the appropriate claim in state or federal court as the case may be in an effort to hold an unscrupulous employer in this state accountable for their practice of taking advantage of their workers.
