Unpaid Wages Attorney in San Francisco Bay Area, CA
Labor laws in the United States are designed to ensure that employees earn their fair wage for the hours they have worked. Unfortunately, these laws are not always upheld, and frequently employees are the victims of wage disputes, unpaid wages or overtime, and other pervasive and destructive tactics.
Employers who have committed any number of transgressions are in violation of specific statutes, notably the Federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and the California Labor Code (CLC). These laws help guarantee a fair and legal wage for workers, in addition to specific compensation for overtime hours worked. These laws also help protect workers by giving them adequate breaks and lunch breaks throughout the course of a workday that are determined by the number of hours worked. There are also other important considerations, such as whether an employee is exempt or not and whether they are determined by a contractual agreement between employee and employer.
