Choose the Best Path Forward When Your Workplace Rights are Violated

Employees often attempt to seek justice regarding their employers’ unfair practices through the California Labor Board, which handles claims for unpaid wages & overtime, meal & rest period violations, and other violations of employees’ rights.

Unfortunately, the Labor Board is not always capable of providing the compensation you deserve, which could include civil penalties and other damages that are outside of the scope of Labor Board claims.

Before you pursue a California Labor Board claim, it is necessary to understand what assistance they may or may not be able to provide in your circumstances. And the best way to do that is with knowledgeable support and guidance from the attorneys at Baker Law Group, LLP.

California Labor Board Claims FAQ

Read All Frequently Asked Questions

Like many government entities throughout the state of California, the California Labor Board has experienced severe budget cuts, and there are now fewer Labor Board employees working on many more cases at a time.

The impact of these budget cuts is that claims are often being processed much slower, and claimants may even have difficulty speaking to a Labor Board employee regarding their claim.

In contrast, when you hire Baker Law Group, LLP, to pursue a claim for unpaid wages, you can be sure that your attorney is pursuing the case aggressively and will provide status updates whenever you ask for them.

The California Labor Board will only seek to enforce overtime wages for three years back from the filing of your claim due to a statute of limitations.

In contrast, a California employment attorney will generally pursue your unpaid wages going back four years from the filing of your claim under the California Business & Professions Code Section 17200. This generally allows the employee to recover one additional year’s worth of unpaid overtime.

The California Labor Board generally will not pursue such penalties, whereas a California employment attorney will. A private attorney may pursue a claim under the California Private Attorney General’s Act, however, which allows aggrieved employees to recover civil penalties on behalf of themselves, as well as other similarly situated employees with the company.

We do not charge for an initial consultation, and Baker Law Group, LLP, takes most wrongful termination cases on contingency, meaning you don’t pay until you win. When you contact Baker Law Group, LLP, we can tell you if a contingency fee structure is right for your case.
