If you see errors on your paycheck, speak up immediately

If you look at your paycheck and see a problem, do you know what to do? Many people know that they need to bring it up, but some will wait for the next check to see if the issue is fixed. If it's not, they might then remember to bring up the problem with their previous check, but sometimes people forget.

New laws set to be implemented in January 2020

With each new year, there are many new laws that go into place throughout the United States. In California, there are changes that could impact how you're going to be paid. There are a few important laws set to begin in 2020, but one you should get to know is the new minimum wage.

New law could change the gig economy

The California Senate may be ruling on a new gig economy law in the coming weeks, according to a Sept. 9 report. The law, Assembly Bill 5, would reclassify many "gig" workers, also called independent contractors, as normal W-2 employees. If that happens, companies could be forced to pay out health benefits, overtime pay and workers' compensation among other benefits.

Don't let your employer pay you incorrectly: Speak out

Recognizing when you're being shorted on your paychecks might not be simple, but it's something you should make sure you're checking every time you receive one. Whether it's a missing hour of pay or overtime that hasn't been paid, you shouldn't allow someone to take advantage of your time.
