Employee Unpaid Wage Issues in California
California employers in cities like San Francisco and Los Angeles sometimes violate employment laws resulting in unpaid wage issues for employees. Employment law takes into account unpaid wage issues and related problems such as: failure to pay the minimum wage, intentional employee misclassification, sexual harassment, wrongful termination, or unfair employment practices that discriminate.
First and foremost, an employee must report the violation. The appropriate state or federal regulatory authority might include the EEOC, FEHC, or a labor union representative. A labor lawyer at our firm can represent you in administrative hearings before the EEOC or FEHC. We also commonly represent employees in mediation or arbitration hearings, or through litigation, if that becomes necessary to protect your rights.
One of our experienced California lawyers can help you understand your rights under both the federal and California employment laws. Employment and labor laws set the legal parameters for employment contracts, equal employment opportunities, wages and hours, health and safety, and employee benefits, along with union organization and collective bargaining. If you need someone to stand up for you against the unfair practices of your employer (i.e., denied wages, break periods, discrimination, sexually harassed, etc.), Kingsley & Kingsley has extensive experience handling such employment law related claims.
Consulting an experienced Los Angeles employment lawyer is an effective means for you to deal with unfair treatment in your workplace. Help is available; feel free to contact Kingsley & Kingsley to arrange a free initial consultation.
