PRACTICE AREAS

WAGE AND HOUR CLASS ACTIONS

All too often, employees are short-changed on their hours worked. We ensure that our clients receive 100% of the compensation that they deserve for the hard work they put in on the job.

REPRESENTATIVE PAGA ACTIONS

When an employer forces employees to sign mandatory arbitration agreements, the Private Attorneys General Act, or PAGA, allows employees to protect their rights by filing suits on behalf of themselves for labor violations.

CONSUMER CLASS
ACTIONS

Consumer class actions surface in virtually every industry and cover a wide range of products and business practices, from defective computers to complex financial instruments and more. In recent years, CCAs have increasingly been brought based on allegedly misleading information contained on the labels of foods and other packaged products.

FAILURE TO PAY MINIMUM AND OVERTIME WAGES

All too often, employees are short-changed for their hours worked. We are ready to make sure that our clients receive 100% of the compensation that they deserve for the hard work they put in on the job.

FAILURE TO PROVIDE MEAL AND REST BREAKS

Under California law, employees are entitled to specific meal and rest breaks throughout their scheduled shifts. If workers are unable to take their scheduled breaks, they can be compensated for those missed rest periods.

FAILURE TO REIMBURSE BUSINESS EXPENSES

Employers are required by law to reimburse their employees for expenses incurred by them on or relating to the job. If they fail to compensate employees for these expenses, employees can take action to recover their money.
