According to the United States Department of Labor, employees who work overtime are required by their employers to be paid premium pay for their work. Under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), employees who work in excess of 40 hours per work must receive overtime pay of at least one and half times their regular pay. Overtime is not required on Saturdays, Sundays, or holidays unless overtime hours are worked on these days. Furthermore, workers who are covered by the FLSA are entitled to minimum wages.
Wage disputes may cover disagreements concerning hours worked as well as other matters, including wages due after separation from an employer, vacation pay violations, overtime violations, meal and rest break violations, recordkeeping violations, and more. These matters are covered by the California Labor Code as well as federal law.
Our firm is fully prepared to represent you in any matter concerning wages or overtime disputes or concerns. If you believe your employer has violated your rights or their obligations under state or federal law, it is important that you discuss the situation with a California employment law attorney at your earliest opportunity.
