What Are Your Rights As A Wage And Hour Employee?

All employees have basic wage and hour rights in the workplace — including the right to fair compensation. A job applicant also has certain rights even prior to being hired as an employee. Those rights include the right to be free from wage discrimination based on age, gender, race, national origin, or religion during the hiring process.

Below are common wage and hour violations. 

Wage & Hour Cases

Employers often fail to comply with California Wage and Hour requirements in many different ways, including the following common violations: 

  1. Not providing employees with an uninterrupted 30 minute meal period after fifth hour of the shift.
  2. Not paying an extra hour of pay for each missed meal period or rest break.
  3. Not paying an extra hour of pay for each missed meal period or rest break.
  4. Not providing all required information on paystubs and earnings statements.
  5. Not compensating employees for all employment expenses (such as uniforms, automobile mileage, etc.).
  6. Not providing “cool down” periods for employees working in hot temperatures.
  7. Not providing suitable seating.
  8. Forcing employees to work “off the clock,” or “rounding” employee time at the beginning or end of the shift.
  9. Requiring you to take your lunch while still working and not paying you for that time.
