If you have not received the wages your employer owes you, you can file a claim to recover them. You must complete this process within a certain timeframe, and an employment law attorney can provide more information about that, as well as represent you in your wage claim.
The following is some information that will be helpful in starting your claim for unpaid wages:
It can be very helpful to know your employer’s information to file claim for wage theft. Generally, that will be as simple as your company or employer’s name and contact information.
You will also need to submit your personal information. That can include your name, birthdate and employee information.
It is also essential to have your current contact information on-hand. That means your email, mailing address and phone number. This information is necessary because it will help ensure that you receive your wages when you win your claim.
According to the Division of Labor Standards Enforcement in California, you must submit various supporting documents for your claim. These may include your time records, paystubs, paychecks, employment information or union agreements. In addition, you may need to submit additional worksheets depending on the claim you are filing.
If you are unsure of what steps to take to get the unpaid wages you are owed, contact a California employment law attorney. An attorney with extensive experience in this area of law can help organize and expedite your wage claim.
