There are many ways that businesses can cheat employees out of their hourly wages, often without the worker even knowing they’re being cheated. Whether it’s the occasional request to stay an additional hour that then becomes a regular pattern – consistently without pay – or the “press of business” that means you can’t take your lunch break, neglecting to compensate employees for time worked is illegal.
Camarillo wage and hour violations often affect an entire class of employees, not just one employee. Immigrant workers are most susceptible but many hourly workers are not well informed about how California and federal employment laws help them.
If you’re an hourly worker, you ARE protected from illegal and unreasonable employer requirements that you work overtime or skip breaks. But you might need legal help to ensure your rights are protected and to help you get the wages you are entitled.
The most significant concerns regarding wage and hour lawsuits is misclassification of lower-level workers as “managers,” and misclassification of employees as “contractors” in order to avoid wage and hour laws. Salaried workers whose job duties are typically routine may have been misclassified. Find out more about misclassification to see if this has happened to you.
