Protecting Your Right To File A Misclassification Claim

If your employer classifies you as an independent contractor, but you had a different understanding of your employment status, you could be missing out on significant benefits, including wages owed to you.

Independent contractors are not protected under many California labor laws. This means if your employer mistakenly or purposefully classifies you as an independent contractor, you have a right to file a complaint with the Department of Industrial Relations.

At The Costa Law Firm, we understand how the employee misclassification claim process can get complicated. Without the help of an experienced lawyer, following up with a claim can become too overwhelming.

Our attorneys have more than 25 years of comprehensive experience successfully representing clients in Gold River, Sacramento County and Central and Northern California who are facing employment disputes. Our firm is dedicated to efficiently protecting the interests and rights of workers whether in court, before administrative or regulatory boards, through arbitration or mediation.

Do Not Lose Out On Vital Benefits

If you are considered an independent contractor by your employer, you stand to lose the right to important employee benefits such as:

  • Health insurance
  • Family leave
  • Pension plans
  • Minimum wages, including overtime pay
  • Workers’ compensation
  • Unemployment insurance
  • Protection from employer retaliation

At The Costa Law Firm, our lawyers offer honest counsel and are often able to get optimal results through effective negotiation. We pursue the most cost-effective method to resolve your claim.
