California is home to some of the largest and most powerful companies in the world. As a worker, you know that the success of these organizations comes from one source, and one source only: The labor of employees.
Regardless of the size of a business or of the scope of its operations, employees are the backbone of success. That means, when you go above and beyond to contribute to furthering the vision of your employer — working overtime, for example — you deserve to fair compensation.
Unfortunately, your employer may not see things the same way. Companies, from large to small, have historically made large mistakes or, worse, concerted efforts to reduce the amount of overtime pay they owe. Some go so far as to accomplish this by violating employment law.
Unfortunately, going up against large companies as a single worker may intimidate you, confuse you or even make you feel as though any action would have no effect. Our firm is not afraid to go up against even the largest organizations.
If you have a case, especially if you work for a large corporation, chances are that you may not be the only person who has suffered from unethical practices or outright wage and our violations. You could become part of a class action suit, depending on your situation.
For reference, class-action suits provide a way for individuals such as yourself to have more of a chance for justice against these large, powerful companies. They typically allow you to come together with your fellow plaintiffs to establish the strongest case possible based on your collective evidence.
We understand that, while California law on overtime or double time may seem relatively simple on paper, the real-world applications can be very confusing. Please continue to our main site to read more details on this subject.
