Employer Isn’t Paying Minimum Wage

If your employer isn’t paying minimum wage, you need to speak to an experienced California employment law attorney right away. Call the Myers Law Group.

Question:

What should I do if my employer doesn’t pay me minimum wage?

Answer:

An issue that has been coming up a little bit more often now is the fact that employees are coming to us and realizing that, under California law, the minimum wage is going up, and that it will continue to go up every year for the next couple of years until it reaches a maximum number, depending on the number of employees the employer has. Under California law, that minimum wage is higher than the one defined by Federal law, so a lot of employees will look at their compensation and realize that they’re not being paid an hourly rate that’s higher than the minimum wage. If that’s you, I think it’s important for you to realize that you have rights and talk to an attorney that can address those minimum wage issues with you.

Employer Isn't Paying Minimum WageThere are also times in which it’s unclear how much you’re actually being paid and whether or not through unlawful deductions you’re being paid less than minimum wage, if, for example, you’re being paid on a piece rate, or you’re not being paid during time periods in which you’re being forced to take a rest break and not receiving minimum wage, despite the fact that you’re supposed to be paid during all rest breaks, which are different than lunch breaks.

If you’re working for an employer and you have questions regarding whether or not you’re being paid minimum wage, or whether or not you’re being paid for all hours worked, or you’re being properly paid for overtime, whatever the question you have regarding wages and hours, it’s important for you to talk to a law firm. If I can answer those questions for you, feel free to give me a call. I or one of the attorneys here will be happy to walk you through that.
