Wage And Hour Violations: Exposing Wage Theft In California

California has strong laws protecting workers from wage theft. But many companies try to cut corners, leaving employees shortchanged. At Law Offices of Choi & Associates, wage theft lawyers help Los Angeles workers uncover hidden violations and recover the wages they deserve.

Shining A Light On Unpaid Wages And Missed Breaks

Wage theft often goes unnoticed. Our experienced attorneys focus on identifying these hidden practices, such as:

  • Misclassifying employees as exempt from overtime
  • Denying meal or rest breaks
  • “Off-the-clock” work that goes unpaid
  • “Wage docking” for minor infractions

These tactics can significantly impact your paycheck. Our employment law attorneys can help you determine if you’ve been a victim of wage theft and fight to get you the compensation you’ve earned.

Common Violations: Unpaid Overtime And Breaks

Unpaid overtime and missed breaks are among the most common wage and hour violations in the workplace. Under California law, employees are entitled to overtime pay when they work more than 8 hours in a workday or 40 hours in a workweek.

Additionally, California law mandates that employees receive a 10-minute paid rest break for every 4 hours worked and a 30-minute unpaid meal break for shifts lasting more than 5 hours. Our attorneys have extensive experience handling cases involving these types of violations and are prepared to fight for your rights.

Understanding Your Rights Under California Law

California goes above and beyond federal minimum wage and overtime protections. Our team stays up-to-date on complex state labor laws, including:

  • The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA)
  • California Labor Code
  • Industry-Specific Wage Orders

We’ll explain your rights and explore all legal options for recovering unpaid wages.
