Wage & Overtime Lawyer in Los Angeles
Under the Fair Labor Standards Act, federal minimum wage and overtime pay rules are established. Federal law states, employees are entitled to time and a half for all hours in excess of 40 hours per week. However, the California Labor Code and State Wage Orders have a different standard: California employees who work more than 8 hours per day are entitled to overtime, in addition to those working more than 40 hours per week. There are various differences that apply under California law and not under federal law. If you believe that your employer did not comply with federal and/or California provisions and that your employer owes you money, you may seek the compensation that you deserve, as well as applicable penalties.

Wage and Overtime Issues:
California employers are required to pay their employees for their time. Issues that frequently arise include the following categories:
- Unpaid overtime – whether an employee is exempt or not exempt
- Conflicts between how your employer classifies you and whether you qualify according to overtime pay laws
- Overtime, double-time and other rates of pay
- Calculation of hourly wages, salaries, bonuses, commissions and other applicable payments
- Meal and rest breaks
- Employment misclassification issues
- Administrative exemption
- Professional exemption
- Executive exemption
- Computer software professional exemption
- Outside salesperson exemption
- Other issues
If your employer owes you money, you have the right to pursue payment, as well as applicable penalties.

In the great majority of instances, cases are settled out of court and resolved faster than anticipated. As always, however, our Los Angeles wage and overtime attorneys will be prepared to vigorously fight for your rights in court before a judge and jury.
