California Workers’ Wage & Hour Rights

Unfortunately, wage and hour violations are common in California and across the US. The frequency of these violations means employees should be aware of their rights under the law.

Below are important things that California employees are entitled to:

  • An accurate accounting of their wages and hours
  • The California minimum wage (currently $16.00)
  • A paid 10-minute break for every four hours of work
  • An unpaid 30-minute break for every five hours of work
  • Appropriate pay for overtime work
  • Final payment after their employment ends
  • Sales commissions
  • Reimbursement for job-related expenses
  • Vacation pay and time off
  • Protected sick and job leave

What Can You Do If Your Employer Violates Labor Laws?

You have the right to take action if your employer has violated California labor laws. One of the first things you can and should do is report the violation to your employer’s human resource department. Of course, this might not yield the results you need. 

In that case, you can:

File a Complaint

You will do this with the California Labor Commissioner’s office. Making a complaint requires providing documentation of the violations and attending a settlement conference. If you cannot reach a resolution during the conference, you may need to make your case at a hearing. 

It is essential to state that your employer cannot retaliate against you for exercising your right to make a wage or hour complaint. If they do, you should take additional legal action. 

Pursue a Lawsuit

You may file a lawsuit against your employer if they have violated labor laws. 

Through a lawsuit, you can recover the following:

  • Unpaid wages
  • Interest on the unpaid amounts
  • Attorney’s fees and other legal expenses

Beyond filing a lawsuit for yourself, you could pursue a class action lawsuit in cases of widespread labor law violations. This can allow a large group of people to seek and secure justice.
