How Much Can I Get for My Wage Claim in California?
If your employer failed to pay you at least the minimum wage, you are entitled to the difference between that and what you were actually paid, for each hour that you worked. For example, minimum wage increased from $9 to $10 on January 1, 2016.
If your employer continued to pay you $9 an hour for any work you performed in 2016, you are entitled to an extra $1 for every hour worked.
If your employer failed to pay you overtime, you can receive an extra 50% of your regular wages for each overtime hour worked.
And, you are entitled to payment for any business expenses your employer failed to reimburse you for, any unauthorized deductions your employer made from your paycheck, and any tips or commissions that your employer withheld.
