Experienced San Francisco Wage and Hour Claims Lawyers

We can analyze your situation to see whether your employer has violated the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) or California law with respect to:

  • Minimum wage violations
  • Mandatory "work off the clock"
  • Unpaid overtime claims
  • Refusal to provide meal times or periodic breaks
  • Exempt or nonexempt employee status
  • Inflated job titles to disqualify employees from rights to overtime pay
  • Unpaid sales commissions
  • Workers hired as independent contractors serving as de facto employees

In our experience, wage and hour claims can include aspects of employment discrimination or employer retaliation, particularly in cases where complaints about unpaid overtime result in termination or discipline.

Some unpaid wage claims provide for double damages attorney's fees, so that they are not deducted from your back pay award. In some instances, the employer's practice of underpaying its workforce is widespread enough to justify certifying the lawsuit as a class action.
