Wage And Hour Laws

Payday is a relief for most workers, but it can also be a slap in the face if you are not being paid fairly. There are rules by which employers are required to abide when paying their workers. Some of these rules relate to overtime compensation, wage rates and payment schedules. If you rely on a paycheck from an employer to pay your bills and feed your family, you know when that paycheck seems off. Whatever reasons your employer may give for the perceived shortfall, it's a good idea to talk to an employment law attorney who can evaluate your situation for wage or hour violations. Whether you've been working off the clock, have been asked to work unpaid overtime, or have another related issue, our lawyers at Cable Gallagher are ready to step in and stand up for your rights.

Aren't I Just Lucky To Have A Job?

No matter how slow the economy may be, an employer who is cheating you out of money is still an employer who is cheating you out of money. That's money you could be using to pay for heat, or gas, or clothes for your children. You wouldn't volunteer to pay higher prices at the checkout line, so why would you accept a lower paycheck than what you are owed? There are many ways an employer might violate wage and hour laws, whether intentionally or through ignorance:

  • Not paying overtime to qualified workers
  • Not paying the minimum wage
  • Inappropriately paying a training wage to someone who should be getting minimum wage
  • Requiring employees to work "off the clock" hours that are not paid
  • Deducting tips or food costs from wages

Wage and hour violations have an immediate and tangible effect on the lives of affected workers. Don't allow yourself to be taken advantage of. If your employer is paying you in a way that seems questionable, call our Folsom, California, attorneys at Cable Gallagher. We can help.
