Worker Misclassification — East County Unpaid Wages Attorney

Many employees who deserve overtime pay fall into two categories: (1) Either the employee's duties are misclassified, resulting in him or her not receiving overtime pay, or, (2) the employer has simply failed to calculate overtime properly. An example of a wrongly classified employee would be one who is technically classified as a manager, but does not actually supervise other employees, or most of the job duties involve non-managerial tasks. We will examine the details of the job classification and proper overtime payment with you and inform you of your legal options.

Overtime in California is typically required where an employee works more than 40 hours in a week, and/or more than eight hours in one day. Other issues can arise when an employee is not given mandatory rest or meal breaks, or faces other wage and hour issues. We have extensive experience handling all types of complex employment claims.
