California overtime laws are more protective to employees than the Federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) with regard to unpaid overtime.

Employees undergo a complicated transition after resigning or being terminated from their jobs. Not receiving commissions, bonuses, or wages in a timely manner can make these already-stressful circumstances even more difficult.
Employers operating outside this law often provide convoluted reasons for not providing adequate meal and rest breaks to their employees. The Southern California employment lawyers at DesJardins and Panitz LLP can help you discover whether labor code violations exist.
Class action lawsuits empower employees by creating strength in numbers. Class action suits help hold employers accountable for their violations of employee rights.
