Wage & Hour Law

Defending Against Wage and Hours Claim

The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) was enacted during the Depression in the 1930's. The $.25 minimum wage set at that time has been amended over the years and other provisions relating to wages, hours and other conditions of employment have been added.

The California Labor Code contains stringent wage and hour requirements and obligations for California employers.

Unfortunately for employers, both federal and state wage and hour claims have become the number one priority of plaintiff attorneys who represent employees both individually and in class actions. This is compounded by the increase in penalties, interest and attorneys’ fees for unpaid wages which employers can be assessed. Wage & Hour Law compliance is essential.
