Why You Should Hire Stop Unpaid Wages
Luckily, thereare a multitude of laws on the books that protect hard-working folks like you. These are collectively referred to as wage and hour laws and they are exactly what Stop Unpaid Wages specialize in. We are experts at navigating the complex labyrinth of all these various laws and ordinances and we can tailor our approach to the case based on your needs and the specifics of your situation. You need a team that is well versed in these statutes so that you stand the best chance of recovering your unpaid wages.
We Understand the Labor Laws
There are federal, state, county, and city laws which may apply to your case. For example, the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) is the federal law that protects vulnerable workers from employers looking to take advantage of them. There is also the California Labor Code, a series of civil statutes that comprise all the protections afforded to employees and all the legal obligations that employers must follow. Stop Unpaid Wages has the comprehensive knowledge of the various relevant wage and hour laws. Because there are federal, state, and local laws that are all in effect for these types of cases, it requires a legal team that has a working knowledge of all these ins and outs. In wage and hour cases, the law that is most generous to the employee is the one that is in effect. It is precisely these types of legal details that we are so skilled in arguing on behalf of our clients.
In our years of practicing law, we have also seen all manner of Labor Code violations. These are collectively referred to as wage theft and are precisely the types of cases we undertake on a regular basis. We understand how the system works and we know what approach will likely result in justice being served. Because make no mistake, the fact that you did not receive your wages is unjust.
Furthermore, whether your employer meant to short you on your wages (a bad faith error) or if it was an honest mistake (a good faith error), you are still legally obligated to receive all your wages. The intention of your employer may play a role in how we intend to pursue your case but it does not affect their legal obligation to pay you.

What Are You Entitled To?
Your compensation may include more than just your unpaid wages. It may also include court costs, including attorneys fees, as well as any interest that has accrued since the time of the violation. In particularly egregious cases, there may even be financial penalties and fines levied against the employer who violated the wage and hour laws.

We Can Choose the Best Strategies for Success
We can also advise you on how best to proceed with your wage and hour case, including strategies that will have the highest likelihood of success. There are various avenues you could pursue in your case. You could file an unpaid wages claim to the California Division of Labor Standards Enforcement or the United States Department of Labor. Depending on the specifics of your case, you may also directly sue your employer in court for wage theft. Stop Unpaid Wages has substantial experience in each of these scenarios and can represent you every step of the way.
Furthermore, California protects an employee if they decide to file a complaint or sue their employer. Most unpaid wages cases go unreported due to the fear of retaliation (legally known as wrongful termination), but any employee who has been the victim of wage theft has the legal right to pursue their case. If you have been wrongfully terminated for claiming unpaid wages, then that itself is grounds for a legal case. Even if your initial claim of wage theft is ultimately rejected, you may still pursue a case if you were the victim of wrongful termination. This also includes undocumented workers; they are afforded equal protection under wage and hour laws. Stop Unpaid Wages can handle each of these situations.
