Buena Park labor and employment attorney Yashdeep “Jesse” Singh has represented employees, workers, and independent contractors in wage dispute claims. They may, knowingly or unknowingly, be deprived of basic labor rights, such as the right to pay for all hours worked. A common mistake employees make is they are unclear what wage and hour rights are afforded to them and what they are legally entitled to. Here are some examples of wage and hour violations that occur, which may not be easily detected or known to employees:
- If an employee is not provided a meal break or rest break on a given day, the employee is entitled to an additional hour of pay as a premium for the meal break violation and another premium for the rest break violation. In other words, the meal and rest period premiums are cumulative. Employers violate the law when they fail to pay both premiums for each workday that a meal and rest break is not provided.
- If an employee has her 30-minute meal period interrupted or it is not made reasonably available to the employee before the start of the sixth hour of work, a meal break violation has occurred.
- If an employee is paid a non-discretionary bonus, such as a merit-based bonus, the calculation of the employee’s overtime rate must account for the bonus.
Violation of Labor Code wage and hour rights may entitle the employee to recover damages, penalties, interest, and attorney’s fees in court or through administrative proceedings. The employee can try to recover the relief in court as a representative in a “class action,” which is a procedural device that allows the employee to pursue recovery on behalf of other similarly situated employees, too. If the employee seeks recovery in an administrative wage complaint filed with the California Labor Commissioner, certain damages, penalties, and attorney’s fees may not be recoverable.Contact Us For a Free Consultation Regarding Wage and Hour Claims
