Employee rights: Options for recovery of unpaid wages

Workers in all industries in California deserve to receive full remuneration for the jobs they do. The Fair Labor Standards Act governs what employees must be paid, and an employer's failure to comply can be reported to the Department of Labor's Wage and Hour Division. These laws cover unpaid overtime as well as full salaries that are withheld in violation of employee rights.

When must your employer pay you overtime?

As a California worker, you expect to receive overtime pay whenever you work more than 40 hours in a one-week period. Under the Fair Labor Standards Act, your employer must pay you this overtime at the minimum rate of 1 1/2 times your regular wage or salary amount for each hour of overtime you work each week. The only exception to this federal requirement is if you are a qualified exempt executive, administrative or professional employee.

Workers' compensation: Hepatitis A warnings across California

The California Department of Public Health reports that 586 cases of Hepatitis A have been reported in the San Diego area as of March 23. They say 401 people have been admitted to hospitals, and 20 have succumbed to the disease. Monterey and Los Angeles are included in other affected areas. Hepatitis A -- a disease covered by the workers' compensation system -- is similar to Hepatitis B and C in as far as it is an infection of the liver and highly contagious.

Employee rights could inadvertently be violated

California business owners must comply with many laws, and some of them deal with age discrimination. Nobody wants to be accused of such a violation, but not all employers understand the Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967 (ADEA). It is a federal law that provides employee rights to certain employees and applicants at age 40 and older.

Car accidents: Students on vacation die in fiery crash

Four students from another state took a trip to Southern California as a final high school outing before graduation. Sadly, their vacation ended in tragedy when a suspected drunk driver killed three of them. Tragically, many young lives are lost in car accidents during spring break every year.
