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.
