Wage and Hour Violations
The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) prescribes standards for wages and overtime pay, which affect most private and public employment. It requires employers to pay covered employees who are not otherwise exempt at least the federal minimum wage and overtime pay of one-and-one-half-times the regular rate of pay.
It restricts the hours that children under age 16 can work and forbids the employment of children under age 18 in certain jobs deemed too dangerous.
Wage and hour lawsuits involve disputes over the amount of wages an employee has earned, or the number of hours they have been working.
Wage and hour claims are often complex and may involve more than one type of legal issue. You may need the help of an experienced employment lawyer to help you with your claim and represent you in court if your case goes to court.

Wage theft under AB 1003 occurs when an employer fails to pay an employee their full wages, whether salaries, commission, tips, or other forms of compensation due and owed to the employee. This “theft” can come in many different fashions, whether it be by not paying for all hours worked, not correctly paying overtime, not paying minimum wage, or pocketing tips.
