SALARIED WORKERS STILL GET OVERTIME In California, there are certain exemptions that allow employers to deny paying employees overtime. Whether or not an employee meets those exemptions is typically based on their job duties and responsibilities. There are many situations where employers misclassify employees as exempt from overtime based solely on their job title. For example, the employer will give the employee a fancy job title that includes the word Manager or Supervisor, when in fact, the employee is performing manual or clerical labor according to the employers strict guidelines and protocols. In other words, the employee is exercising independent...

It can be a very trying and stressful time when you find yourself in need of an attorney. Not only are you concerned about your particular legal issue, but like most people, you are concerned about the relationship you will have with your attorney and the fees that will be charged. Let's face it, lawyers, like politicians, have a bad reputation. People worry their attorney will not take their case seriously, or will try to squeeze every dime they can out of the case. I understand these feelings and concerns. Unfortunately, they are far too often justified. Before I became a...

Problems in the workplace?

Employment law governs the relationship between workers and their employers. This law, contained in federal and state statutes, administrative regulations, and judicial decisions, specifies the rights and restrictions applicable to each party in the workplace.

This area of law regulates such issues as employee benefits, discipline, hiring, firing, leave, payroll, and health and safety in the workplace. It also encompasses non-compete agreements, retaliation, severance, unemployment compensation, pensions, whistle-blowing, worker classification, wage garnishment, work authorization for non-U.S. citizens, worker's compensation, and employee handbooks.

Both federal and state laws govern the relationship between employees and employers. Federal laws such as Title VII, the Americans with Disabilities Act, and Age Discrimination in Employment Act prohibit employers from discriminating against employees based on certain characteristics. Many states have enacted their own laws similar to federal ones (and sometimes are more stringent). Cities and counties also can enact ordinances that affect employee rights, such as local minimum wage laws.

Employment lawyers can choose to accept only employees as clients, only employers, or both. Some attorneys focus on a specific area of employment law, such as workers' compensation, whistleblowing or discrimination, but many can handle a wide range of employment law issues.


Essential job functions: The fundamental job duties of the employment position that the individual with a disability holds or desires. The term essential functions does not include marginal functions of the position.

Exempt employee: An employee who is not entitled to the minimum wage or overtime pay protections of the Fair Labor Standards Act.
