Employees have a lot of rights under California law. Our state is concerned about the prompt and fair payment of wages and to ensure that all employees are free from discrimination. Unfortunately, whether intentional or inadvertent, many employers in California fail to comply with these laws.
At Branfman Mayfield Bustarde Reichenthal, LLP, we represent employees in employment law claims against their current or former employer. Whether you have just been illegally fired, or have not been paid the correct wage for some time, our seasoned, compassionate attorneys are here to help.
Wage And Hour Claims
The employment attorneys at Branfman Mayfield Bustarde Reichenthal, LLP have the knowledge and information to analyze your claim for wage and hour violations. If your employer has been underpaying you, not giving the requisite meal or rest breaks or has told you that you are an independent contractor, but treats you like an employee, our attorneys can analyze the facts in your situation and help determine if there has been a violation of law. Topics such as vacation policies, overtime requirements, scheduling of meal breaks, determining if an employee qualifies as a salaried employee and determining if a person is an employee or an independent contractor are just a few of the issues that our attorneys encounter on a regular basis.
