California Misclassification Lawyers
Employers must classify employees in a correct manner to know which laws will apply to an individual’s employment. When a company misclassifies an employee, that employee’s rights may be violated under federal and state wage and hour laws. If you think you may have been misclassified, do not hesitate to discuss your options with a California misclassification attorney at Setareh Law Group.
Exempt or Non-Exempt
Employees will be classified as either exempt or non-exempt. Exempt employees are not governed by minimum wage and overtime laws, so employers often want to categorize employees as exempt whenever possible. Employees misclassified as exempt are often owed unpaid overtime and other compensation.
If a company calls you an independent contractor and you should be classified as an employee, you might be entitled to significant compensation for a variety of employment law violations. Our attorneys can examine your work situation and advise whether you were misclassified.
