California Wage and Hour Lawyers
Fighting Wage and Hour Violations for Employees in California
When your employer fails to pay the wages you earned or otherwise violates labor laws, you can feel alone in the situation. However, in many cases, you are not alone, as too many employers commit wage and hour violations on a widespread basis across the company. Several – or hundreds – of employees may be experiencing the same violations of their rights by your employer. In qualified situations, the law allows all of you to join together in a class action lawsuit to fight for the wages or recovery you deserve together.
Taking on your employer often seems like an impossible task, even if there is a group of employees wishing to do so. The California wage and hour lawyers at Setareh Law Group represent classes of employees in a number of wage and hour cases, and we have the experience you need on your side. Contact our office for more information today.
Common Wage and Hour Class Actions
Both federal and California state set strict standards and requirements when it comes to wages and many other labor-related matters. These include the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and the group of laws included in the California Labor Code. This means, however, that there are many opportunities for employers to violate the law and impose on the rights of employees – sometimes, many or all employees at once.
The legal team at the Setareh Law Group represents classes of employees in class action lawsuits involving the following and more:
- Minimum wage violations
- Unpaid overtime
- Denied expense reimbursement
- Misclassification of employees
- Denied vacation pay
- Paystub violations
- FLSA violations
If numerous employees experienced the same or similar type of harm from the same or similar type of violation, you should discuss a possible class action case with our wage and hour attorneys right away.
The Benefits of Wage and Hour Class Actions
It is possible for each employee to bring an individual claim against an employer, though a class action lawsuit is generally more efficient and effective for everyone involved. When employees group together, a class action lawyer can devote more time to collecting evidence to prove violations and the harm suffered. All affected employees will present the same case, which helps ensure fair recovery for everyone involved.
In addition, a class action claim significantly raises the stakes for employers. Instead of facing the possibility of paying unpaid wages to one employee, the company may be looking at payment to many employees at once. In many cases, this can make an employer more willing to reach a fair settlement instead of fighting the allegations at trial.
