The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and several California state laws govern the rights of employees to fair wages and working conditions. Employers who cut corners and disregard these rights can be held legally accountable by employees.
I have protected employees' rights since 1993, and I have achieved many successful outcomes for those with wage and hour claims. If you have questions about overtime pay, unpaid commissions, vacation pay or equal pay matters, I can help you understand your rights and options for filing a claim with the California Labor Commission or in state or federal court. I represent employees throughout West L.A. and the San Fernando Valley, as well as those in the Silicon Valley who may be involved in wage disputes.
Protecting Your Right To Fair Compensation
Some of the more common wage claims I have handled include:
- Unpaid overtime claims
- Unpaid commissions
- Payment disputes arising from employee misclassification
- Disputes involving vacation pay, reimbursements and other benefits
- Denial of unemployment claims
- Equal pay disputes
Many employees start with questions about whether the law has even been broken when it comes to these issues. With more than 20 years of experience exclusively handling employment law claims, I have the insight needed to help you understand whether your rights have been violated when it comes to your paycheck.
Filing A Wage And Hour Claim
California law allows employees to pursue wage claims either in superior court or by filing a claim with the Labor Commissioner's office. Where you file your case has significant bearing on how fast and how effective the outcome might be, so consulting with an experienced employment lawyer like me should be a first step. I offer a free initial consultation in part for this very reason so that you can make an informed choice on how to proceed.
