California Unpaid Wages Lawyer
While state laws and local laws mandate a minimum wage for many employees, not every employee entitled to minimum wage is paid properly. If you have been denied wages – whether it is due to working overtime, not receiving the minimum wage, or not being paid the full amount of your contract, contact an experienced California unpaid wages attorney immediately, as time is of the essence. In many cases, employees may file a claim to recover wages that they are owed, but these claims are time-sensitive.
Our California unpaid wages lawyers help our clients to recover damages due to unpaid wages, unpaid overtime, unpaid commissions and bonuses, unpaid final paychecks, unauthorized deductions, unreimbursed business expenses, meal break violations, rest period violations, unpaid wages in the form of an insufficient check, failure to provide applicable rest or food, unpaid vacation hours upon termination of employment, unpaid sick leave, and more.
California Employers Take Advantage of Seasonal and Migrant Workers
Here in California, farms and ranches earned $47 billion in 2015, according to the California Department of Food and Agriculture. More than one third of all of the country’s vegetables, and two thirds of all fruit and nuts, are produced in California. Unfortunately, despite a robust sector, it is all too common for agricultural companies to take advantage of the seasonal and migrant workers by not compensating them with proper wages. At Scott • Wagner and Associates, our California unpaid wages lawyers can help you recover the monies you are owed. Contact our offices today to schedule your consultation.
