First, the minimum wage in California must be abided by at all times. In 2019, that means employers in Orange County who have 25 employees or less must pay workers $11 an hour. For those with more employees, the minimum wage is $12.00.
Please know that many municipalities around the state have an even higher minimum wage.
What are the most common wage and hour claims we handle?
Misclassifying a worker as an independent contractor in order to avoid paying them a fair wage is also illegal, and recent California Supreme Court cases have better defined whether or not an employee can be classified as such. Your OC wage & hour attorney can help you sort through whether you have been misclassified.
We recognize that many people are scared to report instances of wage fraud. That is because many people simply cannot leave the job they are in and find another one, even if they are experiencing problems with their pay. Particularly at risk of unfair wage practices are minorities, including immigrants.
What we often discover is that wage fraud is tied directly to worker discrimination based on their race, ethnicity, gender, or other factor.
