Experienced Wage & Overtime Lawyers in California Handle Compensation Matters

San Diego attorneys resolve disputes for employers and employees

Congress passed the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) in 1937, and has frequently amended the law to add additional protections for workers. In addition, several states have passed their own version of the law to protect workers’ rights to their earnings. In recent years, the U.S. Department of Labor and state governments have dramatically increased their enforcement of employee-friendly provisions of FLSA. At Kased Law Group, our attorneys have represented plaintiff workers and defendant businesses in all types of wage and hour disputes. We have developed effective strategies for getting workers the pay they deserve, as well as protecting good-faith businesses from inadvertent errors that expose their company to costly liability. Because we have represented both sides in these conflicts, we understand how to resolve conflicts decisively with the least amount of time and expense for the parties concerned. However, we understand that not all parties to a legal dispute act in good faith, so we are prepared to litigate cases vigorously whenever justice demands.

San Diego attorneys provide effective representation in state and federal court

The two central provisions of federal law require employees to pay a minimum wage and overtime for non-exempt workers. However, our attorneys have litigated disputes arising from a variety of causes:

  • Child labor violations
  • Employment practice liability insurance issues
  • Failure to pay for alleged pre- and post-shift “off-the-clock” activities for non-exempt employees
  • Failure to pay minimum wage
  • Failure to pay otherwise exempt employees on a salary basis
  • Failure to pay overtime to drivers exempt under the Motor Carrier Act and related laws
  • Failure to pay overtime to sales personnel exempt under the Outside Sales Exemption
  • Family and Medical Leave Act violations
  • Improper calculation of the regular rate or overtime
  • Improper deductions
  • Improper tip and “service charge” practices
  • Misclassification of employees as exempt
  • Misclassification of workers as independent contractors
  • Retaliation for protected FLSA activities
  • Unpaid on-duty meal and rest breaks
  • Unpaid reimbursement for work-related expenses

Our attorneys are intimately familiar with state and federal standards in wage and overtime law and work zealously to advance our clients’ interests. We thoroughly investigate the circumstances of the pay dispute so that we have a firm basis of objective data, and use that information to negotiate from a principled position.
