Long Beach Wage and Hour Lawyers Representing Employees with Unpaid Overtime
Labor and employment laws are designed to protect employees from exploitation and inhumane working conditions. Employers that have employees work longer than eight hours per work day or longer than forty hours per work week are generally required to pay overtime. In California, an employee is entitled to overtime compensation at 1½ times their regular rate of pay for all hours worked in excess of 8 hours in any workday, or 40 hours in any workweek.

- Employers who require employees to fulfill work duties before or after clocking in, on a habitual basis
- Employers who ask employees to round up shopping carts, set tables, make deliveries or otherwise perform tasks that should have rightfully been considered compensable work either before the employees clocked in or after they clocked out
