Holding California Employers Accountable for Wage and Hour Violations

Does your paycheck reflect the overtime you've worked? Are you routinely docked for lunch breaks you never took? If you have compared notes with co-workers and found a pattern of employer misconduct, you may have a group claim for money damages.

Pearson, Simon & Warshaw, LLP (PSW) is a nationally recognized law firm with demonstrated success in employment-related class action lawsuits. We have prevailed on a wide range of wage and hour claims relating to:

  • Failing to pay overtime
  • Miscalculating overtime
  • Misclassification to avoid paying overtime
  • Not allowing required meal and rest breaks
  • Withholding pay for breaks not taken
  • Requiring "off the clock" work
  • Deducting wages for cash shortages or broken equipment

Damages for employment law violations include back pay, plus interest and penalties. For example, California law requires employers to pay one hour of regular pay for each instanceof a missed rest break or meal break.

PSW has offices in Los Angeles and San Francisco, representing wage-earning workers and managers throughout California and the United States. If you believe you have a case, call us toll-free at (877) 391-8300 or send an email.

Employment-Related Success Stories

  • PSW lawyers certified one of the first managerial class action overtime cases in California in 1998. The case involved employees of the Denny's restaurant chain who were intentionally misclassified as managers exempt from overtime, despite working long hours and performing food preparation and other duties of non-exempt employees.
  • PSW attorneys brought a class action on behalf of Pizza Hut delivery drivers throughout California. The employees were not properly reimbursed for use of their own vehicles, and not provided regular meal and rest breaks per state law. The case resulted in a $5.1 million settlement.
