Unpaid Overtime

California labor laws entitle employees to regular payment for 40 hours of work per week, as well as overtime for any hours beyond 40 at 1.5 times their pay rate. You are entitled to overtime pay unless your employer can prove an exception, such as for professionals, executives or supervisors with authority over others. Unfortunately, some employers will misidentify employees so they can be paid a fixed salary. If you have been denied overtime payment or wrongly classified as a salaried employee, you deserve proper compensation for your labor and any services you have provided.

Since 1970, the lawyers of Carlin & Buchsbaum, LLP, have represented countless employees in unpaid overtime claims. Our experienced employment law attorneys will meet with you to assess your situation and fight aggressively to ensure that you receive the compensation you deserve.

Wage And Hour Law Attorneys Who Will Fight For Your Rights

Many employers and employees assume that if an employee is paid a salary, he or she is not entitled to overtime pay. Overtime wage eligibility, however, is determined by the nature of job duties, not merely an employee's classification. Sometimes, an employer knows an employee is due overtime pay, but decides not to offer this compensation to get a competitive edge over other companies that play by the rules.

The knowledgeable employment law specialists at Carlin & Buchsbaum, LLP, are fully prepared to fight for your claim related to wage and hour law, including unpaid overtime. Depending on your situation, our strategy may include writing a letter or taking legal action to illustrate the problem to your employer and demand back pay for the extra hours you have worked. As you may not be the only employee experiencing overtime issues, we also can file a class action lawsuit and take steps that may impact company policies.
