Countless employees throughout Southern California work beyond 8 hours a day and 40 hours per week. These non-exempt workers are entitled to overtime pay. According to the California Labor Code, employers are required to pay workers 1 ½ times the regular wage for any additional time worked after 8 hours. Employers are also required to pay double the regular wage for any time worked beyond 12 hours in a day. Yet, far too many companies, corporations and private businesses blatantly violate the law.

Here are some of the most common unpaid overtime disputes in Westlake Village:
