Many Workers Don’t Know If They’re Underpaid. Do You?
It’s deeply troubling that many California workers are deprived of proper wages by their employers. Sometimes this deprivation is apparent — employers asking you to work off the clock, work without a lunch break, not reimbursing your expenses. Other times it can be more subtle and unapparent without proper investigation — misclassification of nonexempt employees, improper classification of independent contractors.

Since 1985, we have helped thousands of employees just like you with cases involving misclassification, failure to pay overtime, and failure to provide proper meal and rest breaks.
We Investigate And Litigate Wage And Hour Law Violations
One of the most basic notions of California and federal wage and hour laws is the distinction between exempt and non-exempt employees. If you are an exempt employee, it means you are exempt from receiving the protections and rights afforded by certain wage and hour laws. If you are a non-exempt employee, then these wage and hour laws do apply to you.
One of the most common ways employers violate California wage and hour laws is the misclassification of employees as exempt employees to avoid paying overtime, which the employer would have to pay if the employees were properly classified as non-exempt.
