Wage & Hour Disputes
Welcome to Workplace Advocates where we are dedicated to fighting for the rights of employees in wage and hour disputes against their employers. Our law firm exclusively represents employees, providing comprehensive legal representation for individuals who have not been fully compensated for their work, including unpaid wages, commissions, overtime, meal periods, rest breaks, minimum wage violations, and unreimbursed expenses. At Workplace Advocates, we understand that wage and hour disputes can have a significant impact on the livelihood of hardworking employees. Employers have a legal obligation to comply with federal and state wage and hour laws, which are designed to protect the rights of workers and ensure fair compensation for their labor. When employers fail to meet these obligations, our experienced team of attorneys is here to help. With our specialized focus on employee rights, we have a deep understanding of the complex and ever-changing laws that govern wage and hour disputes. Our attorneys are well-versed in the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), the California Labor Code, and other relevant state and federal regulations, and are skilled in navigating the legal landscape to effectively advocate for our clients.
Our services include:
1. Unpaid Wages and Commissions: If you have not been paid all the wages or commissions you are owed, our attorneys will aggressively pursue your rights to recover the compensation you rightfully deserve. This includes wages for regular work hours, as well as commissions and bonuses that are part of your compensation package.
2. Overtime Violations: Many employees are entitled to overtime pay when they work more than 40 hours per week. If your employer has failed to properly compensate you for overtime work, our attorneys will help you assert your rights and seek the full amount of overtime pay owed to you.
3. Meal Period and Rest Break Violations: Employees are entitled to meal periods and rest breaks under state and federal laws. If your employer has denied you these breaks or has required you to work during them without proper compensation, our attorneys will fight for your right to be paid for all hours worked, including missed meal periods and rest breaks.
4. Minimum Wage Violations: All employees are entitled to be paid at least the minimum wage under federal and state laws. If your employer has paid you less than the minimum wage for your work, our attorneys will work tirelessly to ensure you receive the proper compensation for your labor.
5. Unreimbursed Expenses: If your employer has required you to incur expenses as part of your job duties, such as mileage, travel expenses, or equipment costs, they may be legally obligated to reimburse you for those expenses. Our attorneys will help you seek reimbursement for all expenses incurred in the course of your employment.
At Workplace Advocates, we are committed to providing personalized, responsive, and effective legal representation for employees in wage and hour disputes. Our experienced attorneys will carefully evaluate your case, provide expert advice and guidance, and vigorously pursue your rights in negotiations, mediation, or litigation, as needed.
