The California Labor Code exists to define and protect the rights of California workers all across the state. Through its many provisions and statutes, it is designed to discourage and prevent the many ways that employers take unfair advantage of their employees. Nonetheless, employers in California continue to violate the labor code and their employees’ rights on daily basis. As such, seeking the help of an employment lawyer can be the first step towards punishing the employer’s conduct and compensating the employees’ damages.
There are numerous ways that employers violate the labor code in order to attain a higher profit at the employees’ expense. Unfortunately, the common California worker is unfamiliar with the labor code’s many provisions. Therefore, employers continue to get away it while unaware workers suffer. If you think your rights are being violated in your employment, you have nothing to lose by contacting a labor attorney. Most labor lawyers work on a contingent fee basis — meaning you will not owe any legal fees if they fail to recover anything.

A wage claim in San Diego can come in many different forms. Maybe your employer is not paying you overtime when he should be. Perhaps he is not providing you with required meal and rest breaks. These are just two examples of labor code violations that involve an employee’s wages. In either case, the employer owes the employee one hours worth of pay at the employee’s regular rate of pay for each violation. Projected over several weeks, months, or even years worth of continuous violations, some employees may be entitled to exceptional damage amounts.

Some employers make false promises to employees in order to induce them to accept a job offer or to perform their job a certain way. Often at great sacrifice, the employee will accept the job based on these promises. By the time the employee has realized that the job was not as the employer had promised, it is usually too late to simply quit and find more work. Some folks move their entire family across the country for a seemingly enticing job opportunity. This form of fraudulent recruiting is illegal and subject to damages suffered by employee.
