Work With an Attorney Who Understands Wage & Hour Laws
If your company or business is facing legal action over wage or hour disputes, it's crucial that you have an experienced employment law attorney working for you so that you understand exactly what you're up against. As everyone knows, an employer in California has a legal obligation to pay employee wages in a timely and reasonable fashion. That means having regular pay periods and ensuring that all employee wages meet federal minimum wage limits.
If an employee is terminated or quits, the employer must pay out any unpaid wages up to the last day of employment, and that employer may not deduct any payment that they believe they are owed from a final paycheck. Understanding these and many other wage and hour-related laws can go a long way toward helping you pursue a favorable outcome for your defense case.
