Common Unpaid Wage Claims
In the state of California, employers are required by law to provide fair compensation for their employees’ work. This goes beyond pay, including mandatory breaks, travel, overtime, and more. At the Law Office of Payab & Associates, we can assist you with a variety of common wage claims.
Unpaid wage claims may include:
- Failure to adhere to minimum wage laws
- Not allowing employees to take mandatory breaks
- Failure to pay unused vacation time (when applicable)
- Lack of compensation for work outside of normal hours
- Failure to follow applicable overtime pay laws
- Not compensating employees for work-related travel expenses
Certain exceptions to various employment laws (for instance, an employer may not have to pay for all work-related travel expenses) can make filing an unpaid wage claim difficult. In every instance, it’s wise to enlist the assistance of an experienced Woodland Hills unpaid wages lawyer who can help you understand your rights and determine your best course of action.
