Wage and Hour Matters
In recent years, the U.S. Department of Labor, the California Department of Industrial Relations and the Division of Labor Standards Enforcement, have stepped up their wage and hour investigations and enforcement actions. Along with this increased governmental scrutiny, private cause-of-action wage and hour disputes have become the most common source of employment-related legal liability facing employers today.
Typical wage and hour claims involve issues such as worker classification, overtime payments, meal and rest period payments and the exemption/non-exempt status of employees. These matters often arise when a former worker files a claim with the EDD. Other times, enforcement efforts by a state or federal agency may trigger an inquiry into a business’ practices.
