Handling Class Actions And Wage Claims
I’m Not Being Compensated Fairly For My Time Spent Working. Do I Have Rights?
It can be difficult to believe that major American employers can blatantly break employment laws and, in the process, trample the rights of their employees, exposing themselves to costly litigation and negative publicity. But as news stories covering “big box” retailers and other employers show, large-scale employment law infractions do occur.

Q. How Often Does The Minimum Wage Increase?
A. Effective Jan. 1, 2017, the minimum wage in California in all industries for employers who employee 26 people or more is $10.50. For employers who employee 25 people or less, the minimum wage is $10. The minimum wage is scheduled to increase every year until 2023, when it reaches $15.
