Our labor and employment law group focuses its practice primarily on employment and labor litigation, such as wage and hour disputes. Examples of Labor Code wage and hour disputes against an Anaheim business for which Yash Law Group provides assistance include:
- Unpaid wages, including minimum wage and overtime wages
- Unpaid commissions, tips, and bonuses
- Although vacation time is not required, if it is offered by the employer, vacation wages must be paid upon separation of employment
- Meal break violations and rest break violations committed against non-exempt employees, such as servers, sales associates, and custodians.
- Wage statements that do not accurately itemize employees’ wages and hours
- Misclassification of employees as independent contractors or misclassification of non-exempt as exempt employees
Since opening in 2014, labor law firm Yash Law Group serving Anaheim has litigated many cases before the California Superior Court and Labor Commissioner on behalf of Anaheim employees and employers. The claims have involved allegations of employees working in the Anaheim area for more than eight hours per day or more than 40 hours per week, but were paid less than the legal overtime rate; receiving a pay rate of less than the applicable minimum wage; and not being provided a meal and rest period during their shifts and not receiving a premium of an additional hour of pay for each day that a meal or rest break was not provided. Often, a single employee will be subject to all of these wage and hour violations, but not know the wage and hour rights. Wage and hour violations under the California Labor Code may entitle the employee to recover damages, penalties, interest, and attorney’s fees. Punitive damages are not available for wage and hour violations.Contact Us For a Free Consultation Regarding Wage and Hour Claims
Employees must remember that they have legal options when they are subjected to Labor Code violations. Employees who are terminated for complaining about unpaid wages also have legal options. But the California Labor Code can be complex, and with so many changes to the law, either by a court or the legislature, it can be challenging to keep up to date.
