Wage and hour violations occur in many different ways

Have you ever felt like you need to become an employment law expert to determine if you are receiving fair treatment at work? We understand this mindset because we have seen so many blatant wage and hour violations in the state of California. To make matters worse, there is a large volume of laws governing the proper treatment of employees.

It is nearly impossible for those not trained in labor law to know all of the many different ways an employer could violate their rights. A few wage and hour violations are easy to spot. They include the following.

  • Not paying workers on scheduled pay dates
  • Not tracking employee overtime
  • Not paying the proper overtime wages
  • Not providing workers with breaks

You probably already know that the behaviors in the above list are not legal and that you can take action against your employer for violating your rights. However, there are other ways employers break the state's labor laws that are much more difficult to identify. We have provided a few examples below.

  • Misclassifying workers as managers to avoid overtime pay
  • Misclassifying regular workers as independent contractors
  • Not paying fair wages to skilled workers
  • Paying less than minimum wage to tipped workers -- this is illegal in California and several other states

We know how confusing wage and hour violations can be to those who just want fair payment for the work they provide. Unfortunately, nefarious employers will continue to engage in illegal behaviors if victims fail to take action. We urge you to consider taking action if you suspect wage and hour violations. Doing so protects you and may help other workers avoid similar mistreatment. You can find in-depth information on these and other employment law topics by continuing to read the resources on our firm's website.
