Protecting Your Right To Fair Compensation

If you are not being paid properly, you may not know where to turn. Many employees who are denied fair compensation hesitate to complain. They fear retaliation.

It is illegal for your employer to retaliate against you for seeking fair wages.

Based in Mill Valley, employment lawyer David S. Harris of the North Bay Law Group protects employees' rights in Marin County, Sonoma County and Napa County. Our law office can hold your employer accountable.

Are You Being Paid Properly For All Hours Worked?

Common wage and hour claims include:

  • Employee misclassification, which occurs when a worker is classified as an independent contractor or unpaid intern rather than an employee, or as an exempt (salary) employee rather than a nonexempt (hourly) employee
  • Unpaid overtime hours
  • Unpaid commission
  • Disputes involving vacation, sick time and reimbursements
  • Rest breaks and meal breaks

If you are not sure whether a law has been broken, we can answer your questions.

Employment Protections Under California Law

The Fair Labor Standards Act is a federal wage and hour law that gives workers the right to receive minimum wage and a guaranteed overtime rate.

California labor law sets additional standards for overtime; timely payment of wages upon termination; meal and rest breaks; record-keeping and pay stubs; vacation pay; business expense reimbursement and more. You may have a case under California law if:

  • You are not being paid at least $10.50 per hour, California's minimum wage of as of January 1, 2017.
  • You are not being paid the mandatory overtime rate of time and one-half for hours in excess of 40 in a workweek and hours in excess of eight in a workday
  • You have been misclassified as exempt or as an independent contractor
  • You are not receiving meal breaks and rest breaks

In many workplaces, violations harm not only individual workers but entire staffs as well. Whether you are the sole victim of your employer's wage theft or you are one among a large group, we will help ensure you receive all wages to which you are entitled.
