Due to complicated laws, employers routinely misclassify employees as exempt, making overtime violations one of the most popular filed claims in federal and state courts. It’s not just small business matters either. In 2017, Bank of America settled a wage and hour class action suit claimed from 478 employees for $6.6 million. In 2014, LinkedIn settled for nearly $6 million in unpaid overtime and damages. And HR company Zenefits settled for $3.4 million to 743 workers for unpaid overtime.
California’s labor laws are some of the toughest in the nation. If you think you have been misclassified as an exempt employee, please contact Garry M. Tetalman, an experienced overtime attorney who will help you determine the validity of your case. Call (805) 879-7518 today!
