A primary practice area of Orange County law firm Yash Law Group is employment and labor litigation, such as lawsuits involving unpaid wages, meal and rest break violations, unreimbursed business expenses, and waiting time penalties. Wage and hour claims can be brought against Fullerton businesses on an individual basis as well as on behalf of other employees.
Fullerton employment and labor attorney Yashdeep “Jesse” Singh has represented many employees, workers, and independent contractors in wage dispute claims. He is experienced in prosecuting lawsuits in state and federal courts, including Orange County Superior Court of California and Los Angeles County Superior Court of California. The following claims of employees are among those commonly filed by our office:
- Employees who were not paid for work during a shift, were required to work off the clock without compensation, and did not receive an uninterrupted, duty-free, 30-minute meal break. The employees alleged recovery of the balance of unpaid wages and premiums as well as liquidated damages equal to the unpaid wages, waiting time penalties, penalties for inaccurate wage statements, and interest. Such individual claims can be pursued in court, arbitration, or Labor Commissioner proceedings.
- One or more hourly employees subjected to a uniform policy that violates California Labor Code brought a class action on behalf of all employees who were subjected to similar violations. Class actions are a powerful device for employees to recover compensation for similar injuries in a single action, rather than bringing a multitude of actions.
- Additional civil penalties can also be recovered by employees in a civil action under the Labor Code Private Attorneys General Act of 2004 (PAGA). PAGA authorizes a private litigant to recover penalties of up to $200 per violation for various Labor Code violations, after providing notice and paying the fee of $75. The penalties can be sought on behalf of the plaintiff as well as other “aggrieved” employees who were subject to Labor Code violations. PAGA representative actions do not need to satisfy the requirements of a class action.
The California Labor Code and the federal Fair Labors and Standards Act can be complex and difficult to navigate. Often, Labor Code violations will go undetected by employees and employers alike. For example, employees may not recognize that their time cards are being improperly adjusted or that their overtime compensation is not properly paid.
