Every non-salaried employee is eligible to receive overtime pay if they work more than 40 hours in a workweek. Some salaried employees are eligible as well. However, some employers still try to avoid paying their employees a fair rate. Whether or not it’s a knowing violation of the law or a simple mistake, you are still owed back pay if you were denied overtime or didn’t get to take mandated meal and rest breaks. Employment Law attorneys can help you with wage and hour claims.
The Law Offices of Michael Burgis & Associates, P.C., are especially set up to deal with your concerns about getting pay for the time you’ve worked, and any other issues with your employment. Our practice areas cover employment discrimination, labor laws, and Workers’ Compensation. We are deeply immersed in cases and claims related to employment and strongly committed to seeing our clients receive justice, as well as the proper pay.
Employers might illegally avoid paying their employees properly in a variety of ways, such as failure to pay overtime or a minimum wage. They may keep you from taking the federally mandated rest and meal breaks. Perhaps they choose not to reimburse you for work-related or required travel (that isn’t related to your daily commute). These are some of the things that constitute a violation of federal wage and hour laws.
Employee classifications are becoming a big issue in California Employment Law. Classifications in this case refer to whether an employee is exempt or nonexempt from certain federal laws regarding employment and pay. Some employers may be genuinely confused about classification of employees, and some may intentionally misclassify employees to avoid paying overtime. Doing that is a violation of wage and hour law. There are rules regarding the classification of employees. If you believe an employer is not following those rules, you should have an employment lawyer look into it.
Our Employment Law practice team is ready to leap into the breach against an employer unlawfully classifying their employees. Call our Los Angeles office at (888) BURGIS1 or contact us online. Our first consultation is free of charge.

Matt helped me out with everything! Ask for Matt! He helped make the process go as smooth as it can possible go. He even helped with legal advice outside the case. He responded within minutes. I would recommend Matt and the firm to everyone. Thanks again!
Michael has shown exceptional litigation skills and has proven to have a high-level understanding of law in complex workers' compensation cases. I first came across his firm through some videos he posted and was impressed by his office staff and his paralegal's understanding of the law as well. Mike's a true advocate for the injured worker.
