Wage theft is a significant problem in the State of California and employers should not be allowed to get away with it.

Employers are required to pay their employees for all hours worked, including overtime hours. When an employer fails to pay its employees for all hours worked, it is sometimes referred to as “wage theft.” Wage theft can happen in a number of ways, including failing to pay wages for all worked hours, paying less than the minimum wage, failing to pay overtime, requiring employees to work “off the clock,” and failing to provide employees with meal and rest breaks. Employees who are a victim of wage theft should immediately seek advice from an experienced labor and employment attorney to help recover those wages, including penalties, interest, and liquidated damages.
