California Wage and Hour Laws
In Santa Rosa, as is the case throughout the state of California, employers are ordinarily bound by complex wage and hour laws that regulate the computation and payment of wages, the manner of payment and the legal remedy for claiming unpaid salaries and benefits.
Minimum wage rates continue to evolve however; it is every employer’s duty to keep abreast of the latest wage orders in order to avoid stiff fines for non-compliance.
Problems arising from wage and hour laws often lie in their correct interpretation. Moreover, wage rules can contain exceptions that are useful when fighting unfounded wage claims. Your employment attorney can help you determine whether your establishment and workers are covered by the Minimum Wage law, and other types of pay that they may be entitled to receive, such as overtime pay.
Failing to pay salaries and benefits according to existing labor standards can expose employers to expensive litigation arising from claims of unpaid wages. Taking a proactive approach to labor law compliance is essential.
