Wage-Hour Class Action
The Fair Labor Standards Act requires employers to compensate “non-exempt” employees for working overtime. Overtime pay at a rate of not less than one and one-half times their regular rates of pay is required after 40 hours of work in a workweek, and any employee who works more than 12 hours in a day is entitled to overtime at twice their normal rate of pay.
Employers will occasionally attempt to misclassify employees as “exempt” in order to circumvent the overtime pay requirement. Wage and hour lawsuits may also arise when an employer requires certain work to be performed “off the clock” even though the duties performed are required by the employer and benefit the employer.
If you feel that you have been harmed by an unlawful employment practice, please call Magaña, Cathcart & McCarthy at (310) 553-6630 or email our firm.
