We Help You Avoid Wage And Hour Disputes

California labor statutes allow employees to file wage and hour claims for nonpayment of wages, overtime or vacation pay against their employer. If your employee lodges a wage claim against your business, you have to contend with the costs of an investigation, time spent facing administrative boards and uncertain impact on your business reputation.

Wage and hour claims are often made when an employer misclassifies an employee as an independent contractor. California employers could face significant fines up to $25,000 for willful misclassification of an employee as an independent contractor.
