Wage fraud is one of the most rampant employment violations committed by many businesses in Los Angeles. It is responsible for untold amounts of financial losses. Whether it is intentional or the result of a simple payroll mistake, victims have the right to seek action to recover their money. The Rager Law Firm has successfully represented men and women for the following types of work-related financial losses in Los Angeles including:
Far too many workers neglect to closely examine their paystubs. While there are many legal deductions, such as taxes, some employers engage in unethical and illegal payroll practices. The current minimum wage in California is $10.50 an hour. Los Angeles County is one of a few municipalities to approve higher minimum wages. However, some employers fail to pay the required minimum wage listed in their employer/employee contracts. In the hospitality profession, employers are not allowed to deduct from tips and gratuities. Some companies fail to pay their sales employees the proper amount of commission. California law requires employers to pay overtime to workers who have labored for more than 8 hours a day or 40 hours a week. All of these are some of the most common examples.
