Employees in California should be paid fairly for every single minute that they spend working for an employer. According to California law, this means that workers should be paid for “overtime” work. Overtime is defined as any work outside of 8 hours in a single workday, outside of 40 hours in a single workweek, and outside of 6 consecutive days in a single workweek. The law requires employers to pay “exempt” employees one-and-a-half times their regular rate of pay for overtime, and double-time for any work outside of 12 hours in a single workday or outside of 8 hours on the 7th consecutive day of work in a workweek. There are some types of employees who are not entitled to overtime pay, but employers may intentionally misclassify workers so they can avoid paying them for overtime and get free or reduced labor.


Failing to pay overtime is dishonest and illegal. It’s also unfair; employees who aren’t paid for overtime may miss out on financial opportunities that otherwise could have been enjoyed by themselves and their families. If you suspect that your employer is cheating you out of overtime wages that you rightfully earned, you need to enlist the assistance of experienced overtime wage lawyers who can advocate for you to recover maximum compensation. Even if you are undocumented, you have rights under the law! Contact Southern California Attorneys, A.P.C.!

You Don’t Have To Pay Our Fees Upfront Or Out Of Your Own Pocket!


Any employee who should be classified as exempt can be a victim of overtime wage theft. However, immigrants (both undocumented and documented) tend to be taken advantage of more, as do tipped employees, retail and hourly workers, and construction workers, among others. Because wage theft negatively affects employees in these jobs more than other industries, and because wage theft negatively impacts someone’s financial standing in general, we know that many wronged employees will be hesitant to contact an attorney because of the high costs generally associated with legal help. However, we believe that every employee deserves to be compensated fairly for overtime work, so our clients will never have to pay our legal fees unless we recover a settlement on their behalf. If and when we do win, the court may order your employer to pay our fee. You have nothing to lose and significant compensation to gain!
