Oakland Unpaid Hours Lawyer

Your employer must pay you whenever you perform work and cannot cut or reduce the hours you worked when paying you.


Your employer must pay you whenever you perform work and cannot cut or reduce the hours you worked when paying you. For example, your employer cannot cut your hours because you did not work quickly enough or did not do a good enough job or because the employer does not have enough money to pay you for all of the hours you worked.

Your employer is also not allowed to ask you not to clock in, or ask you to clock out while you are working. The clock normally starts to run when you get to work and includes the time needed to organize for the day and the time to travel to and from customer locations. Your employer can round time you work up or down as long as the effect is neutral (i.e., the rounding does not have the effect of cutting the hours you worked) but is not allowed to manipulate your time records to cut your hours.

Let Us Fight For Your Rights

If you have unpaid hours and wages with your employer for all of the hours you worked, your employer may owe you money going back up to four years.

If you have unpaid hours and wages with your employer for all of the hours you worked, your employer may owe you money going back up to four years. We are attorneys who specialize in recovering wages for employees, including for non-payment of regular time wages. We work on a contingency basis, so we don’t get paid until you get paid. If you or someone you know has not been paid their wages, please call or email us. We may be able to recover the wages due, civil penalties, interest going back four years, and attorneys’ fees.

You can be confident in relying on our zealous and effective Oakland litigators:

  • We have served Northern California for over 35 years.

  • Our attorneys have been honored with numerous accolades, including SuperLawyers, AV Rating, and Top 100 Trial Attorney Awards.

  • In our decades of legal service to the community, we have garnered a substantial reputation. We are respected by opposing counsel, feared by insurance companies, and followed by jurors.

  • We combine Big Firm experience with boutique office attention and care. Several of our attorneys have experience working for the biggest law firms in the country, including the most prominent maritime defense law firm. Our attorneys rely on that big-firm know-how but prefer the personal touch of a smaller firm, allowing us to provide individualized and attentive representation to each of our clients.

  • We’ve been through it, too. Attorney Mark Venardi had to personally deal with a medical malpractice injury he suffered at a time when he was working a blue-collar job on an offshore oil rig; he knows what it’s like to be a working man dealing with a personal injury. He built his way up to working for the biggest maritime defense firm in the country, before deciding to focus on helping people like himself who were hurt by negligence and mistreatment from others.

  • We like to fight for the underdog. Attorney Martin Zurada is an immigrant and the son of immigrants who tirelessly worked his way up through education and experience to attain the American dream. Even though he has served in large, high-level litigation law firms, he prefers helping clients directly, fighting against injustices, and securing victories for the little guy who has been wronged.

  • We win. We have secured multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements. In our combined tenure, we have recovered tens of millions of dollars for our clients across our broad areas of practice.

  • We care first and foremost about our clients. We dedicate ourselves to serve each and every client personally, and we make ourselves available to our clients around the clock.

  • There is no cost to you until we win. If we don’t make a recovery for you, we will not collect a fee. And all initial consultations are free of charge.

Dedicated Areas of Practice

We offer a wide range of litigation services for Oakland personal injury and employment law clients. Specifically, our areas of dedicated practice span the following issues:

Employment Law. California employers must assure proper pay to employees and comply with a variety of rules and regulations to prevent discrimination and unfair treatment of employees. We represent victims of wage and hour violations, employment discrimination, workplace harassment, retaliation, wrongful termination, and any other form of California workplace mistreatment. If you believe you were treated inappropriately at work, we can help.

Personal Injury. If you’ve been injured due to another’s negligence, you deserve compensation. That’s where we come in. As Oakland personal injury attorneys, we right the wrongs done to our clients. And we do it at our cost during the entire duration of your case. There is never any fee until we win. Give us a call if you have been hurt in a car accident, by a toxic spill or contamination, as a result of medical malpractice, due to abuse or neglect, in a maritime accident, by a vicious animal attack, or any other incident caused by someone else’s negligence.
