Irvine Employment Law

Examples of Labor Law Violations

Many issues can lead to a wage claim or class action lawsuit against an employer. Some examples of wage claim issues include:

  • Failure to provide correct wages or overtime compensation. It is common for employers to ask employees to work more than eight hours without additional pay. Under California law, even salaried employees must be provided overtime pay whenever they work more than eight hours in one day.
  • Failure to give meal or rest breaks. Some employees feel like they must work through meal periods or that they will be fired if they ask for their legally mandated breaks. Companies that foster this type of behavior or that don’t allow breaks can be held liable.
  • Working off the clock. Employers are not allowed to ask employees to “punch out” before continuing to work. When an employee is working, he or she should be paid for the hours worked.
  • Failure to pay all wages due. Employers may owe workers for wages that they have neglected to pay. Companies that routinely pay the wrong amount or employers who owe a number of their worker’s back pay may be fostering a workplace that violates state laws regularly.
  • Failure to pay at the time of termination. Just because an employee has been fired, it does not mean that he or she does not have rights. Employers must pay their terminated employees for the hours they worked up until the termination.

Class Action Employment Lawsuits

Class action lawsuits involve the consolidation of many similar claims against a company. They allow the claimants to remain anonymous and for one law firm to handle the case.

This way, the court will not have to hear several claims that are similar in nature, and victims of wrongdoing can pursue compensation as a group.

It is common for wage claims to result in class action cases because a company that violates the rights of one employee is likely violating the rights of multiple employees.

Corporations and companies that fail to pay their employees properly, who do not provide sick leave, who do not allow meal breaks, or who fail to pay overtime should be held accountable for their actions.

Bisnar Chase Review - Natalie

I’m so impressed with this law firm. I lost my mother because of a seat defect when she was rear-ended in an auto accident and Bisnar Chase stepped up and took our case. The staff is wonderful and Brian Chase took his time explaining everything via phone with me. I’m honored to have the best of the best working on our family’s behalf, trying to get justice for my Mom, because of a negligent car company still manufacturing faulty seats. I look forward to working with this firm and am hopeful for a positive outcome. Thank you so much, Brian Chase. I know you will work your hardest on this case. God Bless you.

Bisnar Chase Reviews

Bisnar Chase has been amazing with me through my lawsuit. I felt real compassion for my case and I was given their very best to make sure I was well taken care of. In addition to the great service given during my case, Bisnar Chase helped me get my son to his invited USA Football Team camp in Texas. They immediately offered to help fund the trip and are so supportive of his journey. I felt Kristi is just as excited for him as I am with this opportunity. Kristi has been an absolute delight to talk with. Bisnar Chase is more than I ever expected I could get in an attorney. I would recommend them to anyone!
