How Much is My Unpaid Overtime Worth?
Unpaid Overtime Worth
Generally, unpaid overtime cases are eligible for the entire amount of unpaid overtime as far back as the statute of limitations permits. For cases based on state law this could be as far back as four years. For willful violations, employers must also pay double the amount of unpaid overtime for as far back as three years prior to opting into the lawsuit or filing of the lawsuit.
Additionally, failure to pay overtime cases usually involves failure to provide proper pay-stubs. An employer may have to pay as much as $4,000 on top of any other damages for failure to properly provide pay-stubs or other pay-stub violations. Attorney’s fees and costs of the lawsuit are also available to employees who successfully sue employers for violations of the California Labor Code.
