LABOR LAW LAWYER – HELPING WORKERS IN CENTRAL CALIFORNIA SINCE 1992
Across the nation, the Fair Labor Standards Act regulates wages, hours, and overtime for most workers. Those in California have added protection thanks to state law. Despite your specific legal rights, some employers may try to cheat you out of overtime or underpay you through various subterfuges. You need to be paid properly; if that’s not happening, call the skilled Fresno employment law firm of Tomassian, Pimentel & Shapazian. If we cannot negotiate a settlement, we take employers to court. With our extensive legal knowledge and our 75 combined years of experience, we hold employers accountable and compel them to pay you properly.
WE KNOW HOW TO PREVAIL
Cheating employers use a variety of schemes to nibble away at your wages and overtime. They may alter your time sheet or directly ask you to work off the clock; refuse to provide breaks and lunches or deduct those hours even if you’ve worked instead; pay you straight time for overtime hours or tell you that your overtime pay will show up in the next pay cycle. These are clear indications that a shady employer is trying to cheat you. The experienced labor law attorneys at Tomassian, Pimentel & Shapazian are skillful negotiators; we can probably obtain a negotiated agreement for you without a trial. If not, we know how to prevail in the courtroom. We’ve done it for decades.
WE ADDRESS YOUR CONCERNS
Employers who willingly and knowingly fail to pay full overtime may be ordered to pay you additional penalties under both state and federal law. Some white-collar workers are exempted from wage, hour, and overtime laws, and the legal meaning of the term “employee” is sometimes at issue, especially when sexual harassment is an additional factor. If you’re a contractor who believes you are being cheated, or if you’re being cheated but you’re unsure of your legal status, let an experienced labor law attorney assess your case and suggest your best options.
With our decades of employment law experience, our attorneys can bring your case to its best possible resolution. We keep flexible hours to meet your needs, and we return every call promptly. We serve clients in Fresno, Madera, Tulare, Kingsburg, and Hanford counties. Our staff speaks Spanish and French; don’t let a language barrier keep you from the legal help you need. Call Tomassian, Pimentel & Shapazian today at 559-277-7300 or reach us online to schedule a consultation.
