There are a number of ways that companies can deceive employees out of their hourly wages, often without the employee even realizing they are being deceived. Be it the occasional request to stay an extra hour that eventually becomes a regular pattern – always without compensation – or the “press of business” that means you can’t have your lunch break, neglecting to pay employees for time worked is illegal.
Oxnard wage and hour offenses usually affect a whole class of employees, 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’re an hourly employee, you ARE protected from illegal and unreasonable employer requirements 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 deserve.
One of the biggest concerns in the area of wage and hour lawsuits 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 job duties are generally routine may have been misclassified. Find out more about misclassification to see if this has happened to you.
