California Wage and Hour Lawyers

As a California based employee, you are entitled to be paid for your time and effort. In California, the term "wages" includes all compensation or remuneration for labor performed by an employee regardless of the term of employment - full time, part time, piece basis, commission basis and the like. In any of those cases, if you feel you have not been paid your rightful wages, you need to contact skilled California wage and hour lawyers to help you pursue your rights against your erring employer. There are various California wage and hour laws and federal employment and labor laws protecting every employee's right to get full wages. If you are being underpaid and wants to receive full payment, you should seek legal help from expert California wage and hour discrimination attorneys who have vast competence in understanding the complex system of overlapping laws and regulations governing compensation of employees in California. Aside from being underpaid your daily wage, there might be other compensation or wages that you are not able to receive either because of your employer's negligence in applying the correct wage and hour laws in California or as a direct act to circumvent the laws in order to save on overhead expenses. This is why, if you feel that you are being short changed, the best course of action is to contact competent California wage and hour law attorneys to be informed of your full rights under federal and California wage and hour laws.

Whether you are being underpaid or not by your employer, your employer is still obligated by California wage and hour statutes, rules and regulations to keep payroll and other employment records for a certain number of years. This statute is enacted to make sure that employers will not be able to feign ignorance or use lack of evidence on the part of the employee in their wage and hour claims. Pursuant to California law, employers must keep employee details, as well as work hours and work history, for at least two years for inspection purposes. Mesriani Law Group's top wage and hour discrimination attorneys in California are aware of the fact that there are recorded keeping regulations, which obligate employers to keep California employment records for at least two years, to include: (1) basic time and earnings cards; (2) wage rate tables; (3) work schedules; (4) order, shipping and billing records; and (5) records of additions to or deductions from wages, among others. If you feel you are underpaid by your employer, whether it be your basic wage, overtime pay, unpaid benefits or other legally mandated employee monetary benefit, you need to be represented by our highly aggressive wage and hour lawyers in California who are adept in determining every wage earned by an employee at a given time, to include computing for the basic pay, split-shifts, alternative work schedules, night differential, tips and other income or compensation that should be included in the computation of your wage.
