Experienced Guidance Throughout the Bay Area
California wage and hour laws are extremely complex and represent a minefield of potential problems – many of them inadvertent. Even unintentional violations of these rules can leave your company vulnerable to costly wage and hour disputes.
The lawyers at Kraeber Law are prepared to provide guidance and tailored recommendations that will help your business comply with all local, state, and federal labor regulations. Our accomplished team has over 100 years of collective legal experience and has assisted businesses throughout California. We provide personalized assistance with matters involving worker classifications, paid time off, overtime, commission plans, meal and rest breaks, and the multitude of other personnel issues facing employers every day.
Meal & Rest Breaks
California labor laws include extremely specific and complicated requirements for employees’ meal and rest breaks. Strict compliance is mandatory and the penalties for failing are serious.
Worker classification issues include employee vs. independent contractor and exempt vs. non-exempt. Both inquiries are complicated and confusing. Employers are required to understand and implement only lawful classifications, and the consequences for being wrong are substantial. Kraeber Law is ready, willing, and able to explain the classifications and assist in making the correct choices for your company.
We can work to resolve any inadvertent or existing misclassification problems before they become potential litigation issues.
Overtime Compensation in California
Calculating entitlement to and the amount of overtime compensation for non-exempt employees is a necessary yet complicated undertaking for most employers. Overtime pay requirements also vary by local ordinance in many locations. Also, many employers desire non-standard methods of paying employees. Kraeber Law can assist with achieving your company’s goals while ensuring you remain in compliance with the labor laws. Issues also arise with employees that engage in unauthorized overtime work and timekeeping (clocking in and out).
Our legal team is extremely familiar with California’s overtime rules and can help your company become and remain compliant with the applicable laws.
