In San Francisco, many employers put profits ahead of following wage and hour laws. Many companies routinely ask employees to work off the clock, misclassify employees as "managers" to avoid paying them overtime, and commit other violations of California wage and hour laws and/or the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).

What Is the Wage and Hour Bill?
The Wage and Hour Bill is another name for the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), a federal law that establishes employer responsibilities with regard to overtime, meal and rest breaks, and other employment issues. While not all job classifications are covered by the requirements of the FLSA, the majority of employees are covered. It's not unusual for employers to misclassify employees as "managers" or other job classifications that are not subject to wage and hour laws.
The following are examples of employer actions that are illegal under the FLSA:
- Paying less than the minimum wage.
- Misclassifying employees as "exempt" from the FLSA to avoid paying overtime.
- Asking employees to work "off the clock."
- Not providing meal and rest breaks.
Employers who are willing to treat one employee unfairly are usually willing to treat other employees unfairly. For this reason, our San Francisco attorneys handle employer violations of wage and hour laws as class action lawsuits.
