Our Orange County law group primarily focuses its practice on employment and labor litigation, such as claims involving unpaid wages, meal and rest break violations, and unreimbursed business expenses arising from the Santa Ana area. Wage and hour disputes are especially prevalent in Santa Ana, California given the number of businesses in the diverse city and the convenient location of the courthouse and California Labor Commissioner.
Santa Ana labor and employment attorney Yashdeep “Jesse” Singh has represented many employees, workers, and independent contractors in lawsuits asserting wage and hour violations under the California Labor Code. In evaluating hundreds of employment cases, attorney Jesse Singh has discovered that employees are often deprived of wages and compliant lunch and rest breaks without even being aware of the unlawful policies and practices. Here are some common examples of policies and practices that violate the Labor Code and may be prosecuted in a civil lawsuit:
- A company-wide policy requires employees to perform tasks before clocking in for work or after clocking out for work, commonly referred to as “off the clock” work, without compensation.
- A store-wide policy requires employees to “waive” their 30-minute meal periods when working an eight-hour shift in a retail store or restaurant. Such a waiver is generally illegal.
- A company-wide practice is to require employees to use their personal cell phone to respond to emails or group chats without receiving reimbursement for the data usage on their cell phones.
All of these procedures and practices violate the California Labor Code and may entitle the employee to recover damages, penalties, interest, and attorney’s fees. Employees can recover relief through representative and class actions, which allow employees to pursue recovery on behalf of themselves and other similarly situated employees. An experienced class action lawyer can help with seeking recovery.Contact Us For a Free Consultation Regarding Wage and Hour Claims
