No case is too complex for our team of experienced and aggressive trial lawyers. Attorneys at
Employment Law Office of Ward Heinrichs have many years of combined experience protecting employees’ rights throughout California.
Wage and Hour Law Violations
There are many ways that employers can violate wage and hour laws:
- Cheating employees by failing to pay overtime pay that has been earned
- Failing to reimburse employees for work expenses that must be reimbursed in accordance with state law
- Mischaracterizing hourly employees as salaried employees
- Mischaracterizing employees as independent contractors
- Discouraging or even penalizing employees for taking rest and lunch breaks that employees are entitled to receive by California law
Employment class actions allow employees with similar claims against an employer to bring those claims in one case. As a result, individuals with small claims that may not be worth filing can join together to right the wrongs they have suffered. In many cases, only one employee actually puts his or her name on a case.
Employment Law Office of Ward Heinrichs handles class-action litigation on behalf of employees throughout California who have suffered financial loss as a result of mass layoffs or wage and hour violations. We also handle consumer class actions for victims of consumer fraud and unfair business practices.
