Are you being shortchanged on your overtime pay? We will fight for you.
Although we have robust state and federal overtime laws in California, many workers do not fully understand how these laws apply to them. This makes it possible for unscrupulous employers to wrongfully and illegally deny their workers the overtime pay they deserve.
Fortunately, you can get information about your rights as well as aggressive representation for any overtime pay disputes from The Law Offices of Larry H. Parker.

PLBSH has successfully represented thousands of clients and secured millions of dollars in compensation for victims of employment law violations, and we’re confident we can help you too.
Know Your Rights
In the state of California, we have very strong overtime laws. As long as you are not in an “exempt” job position, you can receive time and a half whenever you work more than 8 hours in one day or more than 40 hours in one week, as well as double pay whenever you work more than 12 hours in one day.
However, there are numerous different ways that an employer can try to get around their obligation to provide this overtime pay. Examples of illegal ways to avoid paying overtime wages include:
- Forcing employees to work off the clock
- Averaging work hours over two weeks
- Claiming overtime was unauthorized
- Failing to pay workers for meetings, training, take-home work, or short breaks in an attempt to keep their hours down
- Paying workers in comp time rather than overtime wages
- Misclassifying employees as exempt--such as by giving an employee a management title with no management duties
If any of these tactics have been used to reduce or deny your overtime pay, we can help. The sooner you reach out to our law firm, the better.
Now You May Wonder…
…Will Filing an Overtime Claim Put My Job in Jeopardy?
Many workers are reluctant to question their employers’ overtime pay policies because they don’t want to cause trouble. They may worry that they will get fired or demoted if they accuse their employer of wrongdoing.
The reality is, your employer cannot demote, fire, or otherwise punish you for initiating an overtime pay dispute. If they take any adverse action against you, this would be considered retaliation. Retaliation is illegal and can provide grounds for further legal action against your employer.
