California’s wage and hour laws are extremely complex. Fortunately, we can provide you with expert advice. If you are an hourly employee, you are entitled to overtime/doubletime, rest breaks, meal or lunch breaks, reimbursements, timely payment of wages, and many other rights (e.g. bonuses, tips, commissions). Even if you are paid a salary or classified as an “independent contractor,” you may still be entitled to overtime and other employment benefits since employers regularly misclassify employees to avoid these obligations.
