Los Angeles Wage and Hour Attorney

Employers in California are required to abide by various laws and regulations to ensure employees receive fair and just compensation. Unfortunately, not all employers follow the law.

If you believe you are not being properly and/or fully compensated by your employer, you should seek representation from Mancini & Associates. Our Los Angeles wage and hour attorneys are dedicated to ensuring employees are paid appropriately and employers are held accountable for their violations.

You May Need a Los Angeles Wage and Hour Attorney

There are a number of instances when an employer may take advantage of you by depriving you of earned wages or failing to properly compensate you for hours you have worked. Common examples include the following:

  • Failing to pay you for overtime despite requiring or permitting you to work more than 40 hours a week;
  • Incorrectly referring to you as a supervisor in order to justify paying you a salary lower than what you would receive annually if you were paid an hourly rate with the potential to earn overtime pay;
  • Incorrectly referring to you as an independent contractor to avoid paying what you may be owed;
  • Asking you to work off the clock without compensating you accordingly;
  • Failing to pay California’s minimum wage;
  • Not permitting you to take legally-required meal and/or rest breaks.

These are just a few examples of workers being taken advantage of by their employers. In some instances, employers attempt to confuse employees, such as failing to properly clarify the difference between exempt and non-exempt employees. They typically do so to avoid paying employees overtime wages or missed meal/rest break penalties.

You might not be certain you have grounds to take legal action against an employer if you are not familiar with the applicable laws. Do not  hesitate to schedule a consultation at Mancini & Associates. Our Los Angeles wage and hour lawyers will speak with you about your particular circumstances and advise you of your legal options.
