Long Beach, California, Class Action Employment Law Attorneys
Employees are generally trusting of their employers to know and adhere to federal and state labor and employment laws. Unfortunately, that trust is often betrayed, whether knowingly or due to carelessness. As employment law class action attorneys, we often find that consumers and employees are unaware of their rights — or if they do know what their rights are, they do not know how to assert and protect those rights.
Helping bring about justice for ordinary people is the motivating force of the law practice of Westrup Klick, LLP.
Common issues affecting employees like you could include situations such as when an employer failed to properly pay employees earned wages including vested but unused paid time off (e.g., vacation, personal and/or sick leave), misclassified an employee as “exempt” from overtime pay or as an independent contractor, unlawfully withheld deductions from wages, failed to provide duty-free meal and rest periods, or failed to reimburse for work-related expenses, to name a few. Contact us to schedule a no-obligation consultation if you believe you have been victimized by the above practices. Do you know your rights with regard to your employment, your lease or your dealings with retailers or other providers of consumer service or product? If you suspect that you have been ripped off or wronged on the job or in your consumer interactions, there is a good chance that you are right.

You may be afraid that your case is not worth enough to justify talking to a lawyer about it. That's exactly why our attorneys handle class action lawsuits.
