- Has your employer wrongly withheld commissions that should have been yours, per your employment agreement?

There are many ways that companies can cheat employees out of their hourly wages, oftentimes without the worker even knowing they are being cheated. Be it the occasional request to stay an additional hour that eventually becomes a regular pattern – consistently without compensation – or the “press of business” that means you can’t have your lunch break, neglecting to pay workers for time worked is against the law.
Moorpark wage and hour offenses usually affect an entire class of workers, not just one worker. Immigrant workers are most vulnerable but most hourly workers are not kept informed about how California and federal employment laws cover them.
If you are an hourly employee, you ARE protected against illegal and irrational employer demands that you work overtime or work through your breaks. However, you might need legal help to ensure your rights are defended and to assist you in getting the wages you are entitled.
One of the biggest concerns regarding wage and hour lawsuits is misclassification of lower-level workers as “managers,” and misclassification of employees as “contractors” in order to bypass wage and hour laws. Salaried employees whose work responsibilities are typically routine may have been misclassified. Learn more about misclassification to see if this has happened to you.
