Does your employer require you to work more than 8 hours in a day? Does your employer require you to work more than 40 hours in a week? Do you spend time working off the clock after your shift? If so, you may have a claim for unpaid overtime.
California labor laws protect your rights as an employee, including your right to overtime pay for all hours worked in excess of 8 hours per day or 40 hours per week. While some employers think they can avoid paying overtime by paying an employee a salary, or by labeling an employee an “independent contractor,” often the employer is wrong.
If you think you may have an overtime claim, contact the Law Offices of Michael P. Sousa, APC immediately to discuss your situation. In many cases, we will be able to recover any unpaid overtime compensation you should have been paid.
