Has Your Employer Failed To Pay You For Overtime? We Can Help.

Every day, employers throughout California commit employment law violations by failing to pay employees their full overtime wages. You might be owed overtime wages if you have worked off-the-clock; if your employer fails to calculate correctly your overtime rate when you receive bonuses; or if you are misclassified as a salaried employee. If this has happened to you, you are not alone. Whether a violation was intentional or not, your employer needs to pay you the overtime wages you are owed, and you have a right to hold your employer accountable.

The employment law attorneys at GrahamHollis APC have recovered more than $200 million for California workers whose rights were violated. We want to help you, too.

What You Need To Know About California Overtime Laws

The vast majority of employees in California are owed overtime pay — 1.5 times their regular pay rate — if they work more than eight hours in a single workday. Additionally, on the seventh consecutive day of work in a workweek, employers are required to pay employees 1.5 times the regular rate for the first eight hours of work.

Employers are additionally required to pay double an employee’s regular rate for all hours worked above 12 in a workday and for all hours worked above eight on the seventh consecutive day in a workweek.

In general, if you are a nonexempt employee who works more than 40 hours in a workweek, you are owed overtime pay.

Unpaid Overtime Is A Serious Problem

Not getting paid the overtime wages you are owed is a serious violation of your rights as an employee. Sometimes employers go to great lengths to deny overtime wages, including misclassifying workers as independent contractors or exempt employees.

The reality is that unpaid overtime collectively represents a massive financial loss for employees throughout California — not to mention the personal time employees lose to working extra, unpaid hours.

Our firm knows how to investigate unpaid overtime violations, and we have achieved extraordinary results for individual workers and groups of workers whose overtime rights have been violated.
