Most California employees either wait too long to contact an attorney. Or, they never do at all. The consequences can be expensive.
OVERWORKED WAREHOUSE WORKER – A 35-year old warehouse worker in central California works so much that he cannot take his regular scheduled breaks. He has missed work breaks for years. One day, he complains to his boss. The next day he is fired.
PREGNANT SECRETARY – A 30-year old secretary in Southern California is excited about being 3-months pregnant. One day, she comes into work, sits her boss down, and tell him that she is pregnant. The next day she is fired.
UNDERPAID RESTAURANT DISHWASHER – A 40-year old dishwasher at an upscale restaurant in San Fransisco is constantly working overtime. Some weeks he will work as many as 20 hours of overtime…20! He’s a great employee, and his bosses love him, but they never pay him overtime. One day, just like the Warehouse Worker, he complains about this…The next day he is fired.
While none of these three people know each other, they may all share one thing in common.
They may have been all fired unfairly.
And… they my be owed money.
In the Warehouse Worker case, it’s very likely his employer engaged in what’s called a Wage and Hour Violation by not allowing him to take breaks. With the Pregnant Secretary, she may be owed money because she was fired due to her pregnancy. With our Dishwasher, he may be owed all of that overtime money the restaurant did not pay him.
