I Wasn’t Paid Overtime – What Can I Do?

California law requires employers to pay overtime to employees who are entitled to it — mostly hourly employees — but sometimes employers break the law. That's when the help of an experienced attorney may be necessary.

It's frustrating to be denied the pay you deserve for hours you worked. For many workers, it's not just the missing money — it's the disrespect that bothers them. It's their company thinking it can get away with being unfair.

Getting The Pay You Are Entitled To

At California Employment Counsel, APC, our attorneys fight for the rights of workers. Whenever possible, we get our clients the pay they are entitled to. We have extensive experience on both sides of cases involving pay and benefit violations.

Our firm can answer the questions you may be asking:

  • How do we prove that my overtime hours were paid as regular hours?
  • What will I get if I win my case? Can I receive punitive damages from my employer?
  • Is it worth it to bring a lawsuit against my employer for a relatively small amount of money?
  • What if my co-workers have experienced the same overtime pay violations? Does that help my case?
  • If I do have a legitimate case, how long will it take to resolve it?
  • I'm afraid of losing my job if I complain. What if my employer retaliates against me?
