Are you being shortchanged on your overtime pay? We will fight for you.
Overtime laws exist to help ensure workers are compensated fairly when they are required to work extra hours in a day or a week. Unfortunately, many workers don’t fully understand overtime law, which opens the door for some companies to unfairly and illegally reduce their wages by denying appropriate overtime pay.
If you suspect you are not being paid the overtime you deserve, it’s time to contact an attorney.
We Will Fight for You
You can rely on The Law Offices of Larry H. Parker for professional assistance with every aspect of your overtime pay dispute. In cooperation with the respected employment law firm Perona, Langer, Beck, Serbin and Harrison, we will carefully investigate the facts of your case, advise you of your legal rights and options, and fight aggressively for a favorable outcome to your case in or out of court.
Know Your Rights
Anyone who is not employed in an “exempt” position has the right to receive time and a half whenever they work more than 40 hours in one week. In California, you can also receive time and a half after working more than 8 hours in one day. If your shift is more than 12 hours, you can receive double pay.
Here are some examples of tactics companies use to illegally deny overtime pay to deserving workers:
- 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
If you have been the victim of any of these illegal tactics, you need to consult an attorney ASAP. At The Law Offices of Larry H. Parker, we provide free initial consultations to help you understand your rights and options.
Now You May Wonder…
…Am I Taking a Risk by Filing an Overtime Claim?
Sometimes, employees put up with overtime violations because they are afraid of losing their jobs. They figure unfair pay is better than no pay. But the reality is, you have nothing to lose--and potentially a lot to gain--by pursuing an overtime claim.
First of all, remember that you can get a free, confidential consultation at our law office. This means you can get the facts about your rights without your employer needing to be aware of it.
Secondly, keep in mind that the law protects you against being fired or demoted, having your pay or benefits cut, or being the target of any other adverse job actions in connection with your decision to initiate an overtime dispute. If your employer tries to punish you in any way for opposing their illegal overtime practices, you can take additional legal action against them with a retaliation claim.
