Not Getting Paid Your Due Wages In Palmdale?

Violations of California’s complex and ever-changing wage and hour laws occur regularly. It happens every day and in every line of work. Employers intentionally underpay employees or fail to research the California Employment Code or the applicable local ordinance. An underpayment of wages may consist of unpaid time, unpaid commission, lack of meal period premiums, or lack of paid rest periods. It may also mean that your employer has not been paying you wages following the applicable minimum wages set by a local ordinance. In any case, justice is on your side if your employer has failed to pay you for the time you worked. Our employment law firm knows where to look to find violations, and we have an extraordinary record of success in helping employees get the wages they need and deserve.
Unpaid wages can occur in various ways. These include:

Overtime Wages & Off-The-Clock Wages

You must get paid for your overtime work no later than the pay period following the one in which the overtime was earned. Did you know that an employer that does not pay you your full wages, including overtime, may be liable for more than what you are owed for wages? Did your employer require you to do off-the-clock work before or after the start of your shift, including running errands or picking up coffee or office supplies? It is important to understand that you are entitled to compensation for all the job-related work you performed for your employer, whether it was during your predetermined work hours or not.

Wage theft occurs when employers force employees to work off the clock, refuse to pay them overtime, fail to pay them a minimum wage, or make unlawful deductions from their paychecks. There are also several other situations where unpaid wages can become an issue. While wage theft is often apparent, sometimes, it can slip under the radar. Here are a few questions to ask to determine if your employer owes you money for unpaid wages:
If you think you may be owed unpaid wages, contact an experienced wage and hour attorney immediately to explore your legal rights and options.
