Wage Theft

Employees deserve to be paid all of their wages. However, all too often, employers steal from their employees’ wages to make higher profits (this is called wage theft). This is referred to as ‘wage theft’ and can happen in many different ways. You may be a victim of wage theft if you are:

  • -being misclassified as an “independent contractor”
  • -being misclassified as “exempt” unpaid overtime
  • -being forced to work off of the clock
  • -not being allowed to take meal breaks
  • -not being allowed to take 10 minute rest breaks
  • -being paid less than minimum wage
  • -not being paid your tips
  • -not being paid commissions, or promised bonuses

We are the leading San Diego employment attorneys in wage and hour law and are dedicated to making sure you are paid what you deserve. Contact us today for a FREE consultation.

Work Place Injuries & Workers Compensation Attorney

Injured workers deserve to receive competent medical attention, and to be compensated for the income they lose due to temporary or permanent loss of the ability to work. Unfortunately, employers and their insurance companies make it very difficult for injured workers to receive the benefits to which they are entitled. Our workers compensation attorneys work diligently to help injured workers access the best medical treatment, and compensation available in the workers compensation system. We want to help you put your workplace injury behind you and get you back to work.

Discrimination & Wrongful Termination Lawyers

Despite California being an “at-will” employment status state (as well as every state in the union except Montana), workers can still be wrongfully terminated for many different reasons. You have protections if you fall under one of a number of categories.
