WAGE & HOUR DISPUTES

Standing Up for Employees’ Rights to a Fair and Honest Wage

The Sacramento law firm of Perkins Asbill represents workers in central and northern California who are engaged in a wage and hour dispute with their employers. Employees who have a complaint regarding unpaid wages, unpaid overtime, failure to give break time, missed meal breaks, or minimum wage violations have the option of seeking help directly from the California Labor Commission directly or hiring a lawyer to pursue a claim in a wage and hour dispute. Which option is best for you?

Unfortunately, there is not a simple answer to this question. The best course of action is largely dependent upon the specifics of your case. Additionally, wage and hour guidelines are very complicated and are specific to different categories of worker.

Your attorney at Perkins Asbill will walk you through the guidelines that apply in your case in order to evaluate your options in seeking compensation for any wage and hour violations. Contact us today to schedule an informative and confidential consultation.

What Compensation is Available in a Wage and Hour Dispute?

If you are successful in a claim against an employer, you may be entitled to receive the fair wages you were denied. In addition, you may be eligible to receive additional money in the form of penalties and interest paid by your employer. In many successful cases, employers are also required to pay the claimants’ legal fees.

With more than 30 years of employment law experience, our lawyers know how to work through the intricacies of the California Labor Code, the federal Fair Labor Standards Act and other applicable law. Let our legal team stand by your side in challenging unfair wage practices. To get started, arrange a confidential consultation by calling (916) 446-2000.
