Know the overtime pay rules employers must follow

When you work, you might want to get as many hours as you can. Some employers might balk at this and might even limit the amount of hours you can work. This is partially because of the overtime laws that require employers to pay employees more when they work more than 40 hours per week.

Wage and hour disputes must be taken seriously

People who have a job rely on their income to make ends meet. When they aren't given the money they are due, it can make life difficult to live in the same manner in which you are accustomed to living. This is where wage and hour laws come into effect.

Have your honest wages been dishonestly withheld by employers?

You are likely among the many people who want to do their jobs right and to the best of their abilities. Because you certainly know that working hard could lead you to more successes, opportunities and income, you likely want to ensure that you do not give your employer reason to believe you have slacked off. However, you may feel concerned when you receive one paycheck -- or more -- that is lower than you anticipated.

Keep your wits about you when you are fired

Being fired from work, especially if it is unexpected, can be a shock. You might be tempted to fly off the handle and act out in a negative manner. This isn't usually a good idea, so you have to make sure that you are keeping your wits about you if you are let go.

Evaluate the circumstances surrounding your termination

There really isn't ever a good time to be let go from a job, but when you think the termination is due to illegal grounds, you might need to take a long look at what is truly going on. California is an at-will employment state. While this means that employers can let you go at any time, there are some limitations for the reasons they can terminate you.
