Wage & Hour Violations
San Jose Wage and Hour Violations Attorney
Kallis & Associates Has Offices in California, Washington and Alaska
California, Washington and Alaska all have state laws with wage and hour protections that are very similar to one another. These state laws are also similar to the Fair Labor Standards Act, which is a federal law that gives certain protections to hourly workers across the country.
Companies that violate either state wage and hour laws or the federal wage and hour law can be sued for damages. Individual workers can bring wage and hour lawsuits, or groups of workers whose rights have been violated in the same way can join together in a class action wage and hour lawsuit.

Common Types of Wage and Hour Violations
Federal and state wage and hour laws apply to workers who get paid by the hour. These laws do not apply to workers who receive a salary. For example, salary disputes are not covered by wage and hour laws. Common ways in which a company might violate wage and hour laws include:
- Misclassification of employees as exempt from wage and hour laws when in fact they should be protected based on the kind of work they do
- Failure to pay overtime
- Failure to provide lunch breaks and rest breaks according to law
- Failure to reimburse employees for work-related expenses
