Wage and Hour Issues
Standing Up to Employers Who Violate Wage and Hour Laws
The federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) sets wage and hour standards for employers throughout the United States, while the California Labor Code creates statewide standards. All employers are expected to comply with the law to ensure that employees receive all of the compensation and benefits they deserve for the work they complete.
Violations of wage and hour laws happen on a regular basis - some are accidental, while others are intentional. Regardless of your employer’s intentions, you have the right to fight against wage and hour issues and to seek the compensation you deserve.

Common Wage and Hour Violations
Wage and hour laws address a number of issues, which means your employer can violate the law in many different ways. Some common violations involve:
- Not paying minimum wage for all hours worked
- Failing to pay overtime rates
- Mishandling tips
- Not providing required meal and rest breaks
- Expecting off-the-clock work
- Not providing required pay statement and final paychecks
Any of these violations can cost you money that you earned, as well as deprive you of a safe and healthy work environment. The law provides you with the right to seek wages you are owed, and you might also be entitled to additional damages for certain violations.
