The employment lawyer or labor lawyer you select should be experienced with the different types of employee rights and working condition requirements under the California Labor Code and Industrial Welfare Commission Wage Orders. Choose an employment lawyer or labor lawyer who has represented union and non-union employees in actions for overtime compensation, minimum wage and reporting pay compensation, untimely payment of wages, split shift premium compensation, rest and meal period violations, employment expense reimbursement, uniform reimbursement, improper tip-pooling, and record-keeping violations.
A good employment lawyer can determine whether you are entitled to additional wages and benefits beyond what you are seeking. Experienced class action employment lawyers can advise whether your case is suitable as a class action. These cases can initiate positive changes in working conditions for an entire company and obtain back pay and other compensation for all the employees.
