Employment Attorney Temecula

Our Perspective On Worker’s Rights

Most Common employment law matters include unpaid wages, failure to pay overtime, wrongful termination, and retaliation. When appropriate, we provide assistance to individuals with labor law related issues. We also assist individuals in filing a claim with the California Labor Board, as well as obtain compensation for various other labor law related violations. Our clients pay us nothing up front, as we accept such cases on a contingency basis, which means we don’t get paid unless we get compensation for our clients.

Examples of common labor law related violation are as follows:

Unpaid wages & overtime

In California an employee is required to receive overtime pay at “time and a half” for working:

More than 8 hours in a day or 40 hours in a week. This may apply even if you are an employee who receives a:

  • Salary
  • Flat Fee
  • Commission

Moreover, an employee can file a California Labor Board Claim pursuant to California’s Private Attorney General Act and seek compensation, penalties, and attorney’s fees for themselves as well as other similarly situated employees.
