Employee Rights Archives

What are California's wage laws?

We've all had jobs where we felt overworked and underpaid. Maybe you manned the grill at a fast food restaurant or hauled sod and gravel as a landscaper. But regardless of the job, California has laws that protect the rights of all workers.

Employee rights: Federal court ruling might benefit all truckers

A decision made by the federal court in another state might affect truckers nationwide, including in California. This case addressed the employee rights of truck drivers, with a focus on those who work for minimum wages. In 2016, three drivers who filed a claim against a trucking company were joined by almost 3,000 others in a class action suit.

With on the job injuries, worker classification matters

You fall on some slippery flooring at work and break your hip. You're completely out of commission-unable to work, and unable to do much of anything. So you contact your boss about filing a workers' compensation claim. To your shock, your boss responds that you're not eligible-since according to them-you're not an employee at the company at all, but an independent contractor.

Are you entitled to overtime pay in California?

Employees in California are hard-working and they deserve to be compensated for their efforts. Beyond normal wage laws, California employees are generally owed overtime pay for hours worked over 40 per week. However, overtime laws are not as clear cut as this.

Nurses deprived of overtime claim employee rights violations

A group of nurses recently filed a class action lawsuit against Dignity Health, a health care system based in California. The nurses claim violations of their employee rights in the company's failure to pay them the overtime they earned. According to the complaint, the number of nurses in and around Sacramento that were deprived of overtime money totals at least 1,200.

Delivery drivers for Amazon claim employee rights violations

Amazon and a third-party package delivery company is facing a federal lawsuit that was filed in Northern California on a recent Friday. A former driver of one of the Amazon trucks filed the suit, claiming employee rights violations, and she seeks class-action status. She alleges that drivers for both defendants frequently work more than 10 hours per day without rest or meal breaks.

Taco Bell workers claim employee rights violations

When it comes to meal breaks, some employees in California might not agree with their employers' rules about payment. A recent complaint about employee rights involved Taco bell workers who claimed they could not leave the premises during their lunch breaks. They sought overtime compensation for those hours.

Clock-in rules may violate employee rights of teen workers

Many teenagers in California are excited to take on summer jobs to earn extra money and be less dependent on their parents. Typical jobs are food servers, lifeguards and day care workers, among others, and teens are typically paid per hour. Although students are protected by the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and state wage and hour laws, they might not be aware of all their employee rights.
