Unpaid Wage Claims

Claims for Minimum Wage, Overtime & Other Compensation

There is likely no greater misunderstood or misapplied area of employment law than federal and California compensation requirements. Consequently, employers can fall inadvertently into expensive battles with current or terminated employees over claims of miscalculated and unpaid wages, inadequate timekeeping,  from disgruntled employees, paystub defects, and much more. .

Such claims may stem from alleged willful or unwitting misclassification of an employee as exempt-from-overtime. Unless an individual performs high-level duties for sufficient portions of each workweek as specified by federal and state laws, paying that person on a lump sum “salary” basis and without overtime compensation may be a very expensive error. 

Bowles Law has successfully represented employers on compensation issues since 1995.
We provide the highest caliber employer counseling and defense that  Los Angeles and Southern California has to offer in compensation matters, including:
  • Favorable resolution of wage disputes including litigation defense
  • Accurate classification of exempt and non-exempt employees
  • Counseling on sound compensation policies to prevent future wage claims
  • Government audits and agency enforcement actions
  • Paid sick leave
  • Vacation pay
  • Bonuses and commissions
  • Expense reimbursements
  • Tipped employees
