All hard-working California residents want to be compensated fairly for their time on the job. Unfortunately, some find that this does not always happen. If you find yourself in a payment dispute with your employer, legal counsel may be able to help you resolve the issue.
According to federal and state laws, employers have to meet a minimum wage requirement, they have to pay overtime and they have to pay their employees in a reasonable time frame -- among other things. Wrong as it may be, some employers fail to do some or all of these things. The victims of such employers may feel there is little they can do, but that simply is not true.
If you become involved in a payment dispute with your employer, depending on the details of the situation, the law may be on your side. Legal counsel can help you negotiate a resolution or, if necessary, take your issue to court in order to resolve it. As most business owners hope to avoid going to court, hopefully that will not be necessary in your case. Still, you should have legal counsel who is prepared to go that far if it is needed.
A payment dispute may be the result of a simple misunderstanding, but it can also be the result of an employer taking advantage of their employees. No matter the cause of your payment dispute, you have the right to seek fair pay for the work you do.
