Don’t Let Employers Escape with Your Unpaid Wages & Overtime

California law requires that employees receive overtime pay of “time and a half” for working more than 8 hours in a day or more than 40 hours per week. 

Exemptions are narrow and rare, which means that you can still be entitled to overtime even if you are paid on a salary basis, flat rate basis, flag rate basis, or commission basis. 

Everyone deserves to be compensated for the time that they work and the value that they’ve created for themselves and their employers. If you or a loved one is owed unpaid wages and overtime, you may qualify for damages or compensation that can be recovered through litigation or a class action lawsuit. 

Baker Law Group, LLP, has helped hundreds of mistreated California workers secure unpaid wages and damages since 2002. If your rights have been violated by an employer, including your right to fair and full compensation, turn to Baker Law Group, LLP for unflinching advocacy and diligent support.

Unpaid Wages & Overtime FAQ

Read All Frequently Asked Questions

What can employees do if their employer has failed to properly compensate them for overtime hours?

Employees in California are entitled to initiate a California labor board claim or file a lawsuit against their employer for damages caused by a failure to properly compensate the employee for overtime worked. These damages include all overtime wages that have been illegally withheld from the employee, penalties, and attorneys’ fees.


While the value of these illegally withheld wages may seem small on a daily basis, over the years, the value of these wages that employees are missing out on can easily reach tens of thousands of dollars per employee.
