Wage disputes can happen for a number of reasons. To make matters worse, federal and California labor laws for employee wages can be extensive and complicated.
Fortunately, there are many protections for employees under California employment law. If you believe your employer owes unpaid wages or is under-compensating you or other employees, our firm of experienced employment law attorneys can help you navigate those legal issues.
Understanding California Laws Relating to Wage Discrepancy
If there is any possibility an employer is misclassifying you as an employee, contact an employment law firm to get clarification on those specific laws. Laws apply to anyone classified as a non-exempt employee under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). If you believe you’ve been misclassified as an independent contractor, our law office of employment attorneys can help you navigate your wage claims in accordance with FLSA and the local California Labor Code in San Diego County.
We would be happy to provide context around FLSA, California Labor Law, and San Diego Employment Law, so get in touch if you’d like a case evaluation. Our team can provide legal advice and help you learn more about taking action or getting involved with a class-action lawsuit.
