Employee Misclassification

As Oakland wage and hour attorneys, we have found that employee misclassification is a common problem. If you are an employee who has been misclassified as an independent contractor, you are probably losing out on the full benefits and salary of the position. We can advocate for your rights as an employee and recover the benefits and salary you are owed.

Exempt vs. Non-Exempt Employees

If your job has been classified as non-exempt, your employer must pay you for working overtime — more than 8 hours a day or 40 hours per week. Non-exempt employees are generally employees who are paid an hourly wage. However, it is important to note that some exempt (salaried) employees may also be eligible for overtime.

We Protect Your Rights Under "Whistleblower" Laws

As an employee, you may have fears about stepping forward to complain about unpaid wages. Federal and state whistleblower laws protect employees and independent workers from retaliation. You can step forward, knowing that the law and our lawyers are on your side.

With 40 years of collective legal experience, our lawyers know that putting your needs before our goals is the surest path to success. Contact us in Oakland by submitting a free case submission questionnaire and we will contact you to schedule a consultation at our convenient Oakland location if we believe we can help.
