Speak with Our Attorneys About Your Situation
Wage and hour laws are designed to ensure that employees are fairly compensated for the work they perform. At Arata, Swingle, Van Egmond & Heitlinger, we help workers protect their rights.
You can speak with a Modesto wage and hour attorney from our firm about a wide range of wage and hour matters, including:
- Unpaid overtime
- Misclassifications of nonexempt employees
- Misclassification as an independent contractor
- Unpaid vacation or paid time off
If you feel you have been subjected to unlawful discrimination by your employer, contact Arata, Swingle, Van Egmond & Heitlinger in Modesto, California. We represent clients throughout Northern California in employment law matters. We are committed to providing the sound advice and vigorous representation you require.
California law provides that nonexempt employees shall not work more than eight (8) hours in any workday or more than forty (40) hours in any workweek, unless he or she receives one and one-half times (1½) his or her regular rate of pay for all hours worked over eight hours in any workday and over 40 hours in the workweek. The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) is a federal law that also provides protection to eligible employees.
Determining which workers are properly classified as exempt or nonexempt is highly complex. If you feel that you may have been misclassified, contact our Modesto wage and hour attorneys for a review of your case. Misclassifications may arise due to ignorance of the law, or as a result of an intentional cost-saving measure by employers.
