Knowledgeable Wage and Overtime Attorneys for La Mesa, CA
According to the law, employers must pay fair wages in a timely manner. Various California employment legislation such as the Fair Labor Standards Act specify requirements relating to the following and other items:
Work Expenses (Unreimbursed)
Independent Contractor Misclassification
Exempt (Salaried) Employees
Non-Exempt (Wage Earners)
Work Performed off the Clock
Non-exempt employees must receive compensation for every hour they work. Employers are required to pay any and all overtime at the rate of 1.5 times the regular wage. Any hours beyond eight worked in one day qualify as overtime.
When an employee has worked for six consecutive days, the seventh consecutive day will be paid at the overtime rate for the first eight hours. If a worker is on the job for more than twelve hours in a shift, this will be paid at double the normal rate.
A non-exempt individual working for the seventh consecutive day must be paid double the normal rate for any hours worked over eight. However, employees with a normal work schedule of four days a week for a total of 40 hours will only qualify for overtime when 40 hours is exceeded in one week.
When overtime is due, it must be given to the employee on the appropriate payday. Failure on the part of the employer to pay overtime properly can expose them to legal and financial repercussions. Our La Mesa overtime dispute lawyers and pay dispute attorneys are able to pursue errant employers in behalf of employees.
If an employee is let go from their position, the employer must then pay any and all wages due. This also includes any paid time off that has not been used.
If a worker decides to quit the job without any prior notice, the employer will have three days in which to provide the final paycheck. In cases where the employee provides notice before quitting, they must be able to collect their final check on the last work day.
If the above requirements are not met by the employer, they become subject to punitive fees. Such fees increase daily beginning the first day the check is not properly paid, and the fees may continue for up to 30 days.
