  • Minimum Wage Violations: Employers must comply with the California minimum wage. As of 2024, the state minimum wage is $16.00 per hour. This is the second-highest statewide minimum in the nation, trailing only Washington at $16.28 (the District of Columbia’s is higher still, at $17 an hour)Further, it is higher for certain industries and certain municipalities in California.
  • Unpaid Overtime Claims: The FLSA and California law requires employers to pay time-and-a-half to non-exempt employees who work more than 40 hours in a week. An employer must be held accountable for an overtime violation.
  • Meal and Rest Break Violations: California has some of the most comprehensive meal and rest break laws in the entire country. Failure to comply with these regulations is a wage and hour violation.

 What is a Class Action Lawsuit? 

A class action lawsuit is a type of legal proceeding where one or several individuals sue on behalf of a larger group of people who have similar claims. As multiple employees (co-workers) are often subject to similar violations, many wage and hour claims are handled in class action lawsuits. To be certified as a class in California, the following criteria must be met:

  1. The proposed class must be large enough that individual suits would be impractical.
  2. There must be questions of law or fact common to the proposed class.
  3. The claims/defenses of the representative parties must be typical to the proposed class.
