You Deserve To Get Paid For Every Minute You Work; When Your Wages Are Underpaid Or Withheld, Our Aggressive California Attorneys Can Protect Your Rights & Pursue Compensation!
California employers are required by both state and federal law to pay workers a fair wage. Unfortunately, some employers will intentionally find ways to underpay their employees. “Underpaying” could occur in a variety of ways, such as forcing employees to share tips with management, misclassifying employees as salaried or as independent contractors, failing to pay time-and-a-half for overtime hours, and more. These are all examples of unjust practices; while it’s possible that an employer could be underpaying by accident because they don’t understand the laws, it’s more likely that they are taking advantage of their hard-working employees in order to keep more money in their own pockets. That shouldn’t be tolerated. If you suspect that your employer is either consciously or unconsciously paying you less than what you deserve, you need to contact an experienced Thousand Oaks wage & hour lawyer who can fight to get you paid fairly!
At Southern California Attorneys, A.P.C., we have over 60 years of combined experience on our team. Our attorneys will take the time to listen to your story, investigate your claims, advise you of your legal rights, and file a lawsuit in order to recover the compensation you should have earned plus additional damages. Your initial consultation with us is completely confidential, and even when your employer does become aware that you are taking legal action against them, they are not able to retaliate against you. That is, it is illegal for them to fire you, demote you, reduce your hours, etc. We also charge our legal fee on a contingency fee basis, meaning that you do not pay us anything unless and until we are able to win a settlement for you! If we don’t win, you don’t pay. Both of these reasons can give you peace of mind. You have nothing to lose and potentially thousands, tens of thousands, or even hundreds of thousands of dollars to gain from trusting our Thousand Oaks wage & hour lawyers to advocate for your employee rights!
Our Thousand Oaks Wage & Hour Lawyers’ Knowledge & Experience Can Give You A Significant Advantage!
We offer quality representation to any employee that has been wronged and cheated by their employer out of wages they worked for, in any manner, but employees who are tipped, who work retail, who are in the construction industry, who are healthcare workers, or who are sales representatives tend to be the victim of wage violations most often - and the most common wage violations tend to involve overtime pay. You may not be aware, but California has some of the most protective employee wage laws in the nation (as well as some of the highest minimum wages); if you worked in one of the above professions, or another, and can prove that you have not been paid fairly, you have a great chance of recovering a settlement. Our attorneys can discuss your case with you to determine whether or not you have a claim, and then gather evidence on your behalf. We’ll handle all of the paperwork and communications for you! Our detail-oriented Thousand Oaks wage & hour lawyers have helped hundreds of clients achieve justice.
California does have a statute of limitations for wage & hour lawsuits; yours may be two years, three years, or four years depending on what the violation was and whether or not it was based on a written contract. If the statute of limitations passes, it is unlikely that you will be able to recover damages at all. That’s why it’s important to contact our law firm immediately when you become aware, or start to suspect, that you haven’t been paid fairly. Our attorneys can give you advice about how to proceed based on the specifics of your case! We can give you an estimate of how much you can expect in a settlement and explain your next steps.

When I contacted and asked the attorney for some advice, I immediately felt a great sense of unconditional support, and found the office environment to be very peaceful with a very professional front desk and staff. I appreciate all his help and heartwarming support. Thank you so much.
We were fortunate enough to get in contact with the attorneys: we had a water leak in our house and homeowner insurance was not helpful. From the moment we met with Russell, we knew right away that we are in good hands. He took his time to go with us over the issues that we had with insurance. He was very understanding and patient, every week he gave us updates on the progress, show us that he really cares about our situation. He went above and beyond to make sure that we will get full compensation. We are very grateful for what he has done for us. He did an amazing job!!! I would definitely recommend this law firm to anyone in need.
I can’t put into words how grateful I am to have been referred to this amazing firm. I have had an issue haunting me for so long and today the attorney gave me my first sigh of relief in years! He was completely present throughout our entire conversation and I truly felt that he genuinely cared. He went out of his way to provide valuable information and made sure to answer all the questions I had. I’d definitely recommend them to anyone looking for genuine, and professional attorneys!
