  • Has your employer wrongly withheld earnings that should have been provided to you, per your employment agreement?
  • Were you forced to work through your meal or rest breaks?
  • Were you wrongfully terminated in order for your employer to not have to pay you a commission?
  • Were you told you had to work overtime but not paid overtime?
  • Were you told to report for work at a specific time but then not compensated for time you had to wait to begin work?

There are a number of ways that businesses can deceive employees out of their hourly wages, often without the worker even realizing they are being deceived. Whether it’s the occasional request to stay an extra hour that then becomes a regular pattern – consistently without compensation – or the “press of business” that means you can’t have your lunch break, neglecting to compensate workers for time worked is illegal.

Glendale wage and hour violations usually affect a whole class of workers, not just one worker. Immigrant workers are most vulnerable but most hourly workers are not well informed about how California and federal employment laws help them.

If you are an hourly worker, you ARE protected from unlawful and unreasonable employer requirements that you work overtime or work through your breaks. However, you might need legal advice to be sure your rights are protected and to help you get the wages you are entitled.


The most significant problems in the area of wage and hour claims is misclassification of lower-level workers as “managers,” and misclassification of employees as “contractors” in order to evade wage and hour laws. Salaried workers whose responsibilities are typically routine may have been misclassified. Find out more about misclassification to find out if this has happened to you.

You have a right to fair pay for the work you executed in good faith. Contact our California wage and hour attorneys at the law firm of Van Etten Suzumoto & Sipprelle LLP to schedule a consultation.
