Are you being shortchanged on your overtime pay? We will fight for you.
Overtime is often required to help companies get work done on a deadline or achieve their goals. Most companies are happy to compensate their employees for their hard work. However, occasionally workers do get unfairly denied their overtime pay.
If your employer is asking you to put in extra hours without providing appropriate overtime compensation, you may have grounds for legal action.

Know Your Rights
Unless you are in an “exempt” job position, federal law entitles you to overtime pay any time you put in more than 40 hours in a single week. California law entitles you to time and a half after working 8 hours in one day, and double pay after working 12 hours.
Employers have many tactics for trying to illegally evade their obligation to provide over time, such as:
- Forcing employees to work off the clock
- Averaging work hours over two weeks
- Claiming overtime was unauthorized
- Failing to pay workers for meetings, training, take-home work, or short breaks in an attempt to keep their hours down
- Paying workers in comp time rather than overtime wages
- Misclassifying employees as exempt-such as by giving an employee a management title with no management duties

Now You May Wonder…
…Am I Taking a Risk by Filing an Overtime Claim?
Unfortunately, many companies get away with illegal overtime practices because employees are scared to speak up. Don’t let this be you! The reality is, your employer cannot punish you for seeking information about overtime claims or for filing a lawsuit against them.
First and foremost, remember that your consultation with our office is confidential. No one needs to know that you are investigating your rights and options.
Secondly, remember that it is illegal for your employer to take any adverse actions against you as punishment for filing an overtime claim. If you are fired, transferred, demoted, or otherwise punished, this constitutes retaliation. Retaliation is illegal and will give your grounds for further legal action against your employer.
