California Labor Law Attorneys Assisting Employees With Violations of California Labor and Overtime Laws!
Our California labor law attorneys focus primarily on the recovery of overtime wages for California employees. When hiring a California labor law attorney to recover overtime pay, it is important to not only choose an experienced California labor law attorney, but one that focuses on the recovery of overtime pay or unpaid wages. Many CA labor law attorneys are not experienced in the recovery of California overtime pay, but instead accept a variety of cases such as discrimination and harassment. Our firm is experienced in California labor laws and even more specifically in the area of California overtime laws.
California overtime laws allow non-exempt employees to collect earned overtime pay at one and a half their rate of pay when working over 40 hours in a workweek OR when working over 8 hours in a day. The California Department of Labor regulates employers with respect to CA overtime law and also enforces California labor laws. An experienced California labor law attorney should be able to advise you as to whether or not you may be entitled to back overtime pay, penalties, and interest. Many California employees are misclassified by the employers as exempt from overtime, when in fact, California Labor Law holds that they are indeed entitled to overtime pay. The CA labor law mandates that the duties of an employee, and not the job title or the assigned exempt status given to the employee by the employer, determine whether or not an employee is entitled to overtime pay. California labor law places the burden on the employer to maintain the records related to overtime worked. If you feel your employer may be in violation of California labor laws or California overtime laws, our attorneys offer a free case review. If your case is accepted, you pay nothing unless we settle or win your case.
San Francisco Employment Attorneys Representing Employees Exclusively in Employment Law Cases
In San Francisco, employment attorneys are many in number. When selecting a San Francisco employment lawyer, it is not only the educational background and number of years that lawyer has been licensed that are important, but the actual number and type of cases that particular lawyer has handled that should be considered. One San Francisco employment lawyer may have 15 years of experience but rarely practices and only handles perhaps 2 cases per year while another San Francisco employment lawyer may have 5 years experience, but handles 10 cases per year. Also, a San Francisco employment attorney that handles only smaller overtime pay claims typically handled by the CA labor board and has never gone to trial is not likely a stronger choice than a San Francisco labor lawyer who handles class action cases and large individual cases.

Our San Francisco employment lawyers have been involved in over 150 class action cases, and over 750 individual California labor lawsuits. This experience is invaluable to clients seeking assistance with potential California labor law and employment claims.
Many of the cases filed in California by our employment lawyers have to do with California overtime pay.

Other California labor law attorneys may file claims for discrimination, retaliation, harassment or wrongful termination.
