San Diego, California Employment Law Attorneys

Treating employees unfairly is not only illegal and unethical; it is also bad for business. The Emge Firm, LLP has an in-depth understanding of the unique laws that protect employees in California.

We will vigorously prosecute your rights.

The lawyers at The Emge Firm, LLP will meet with you free of charge to discuss the specifics of your case. Often, we may discover that your co-workers have also been treated illegally. We are specifically structured to handle complex employee class action lawsuits for you.

We represent clients with a variety of employment law claims, including:

  • Wage and Hour Claims for Clients - If you are a salaried employee in San Diego, Riverside or Los Angeles, you are not automatically ineligible for overtime compensation. In California, salaries are based on 40 hours per week and 8 hours per day. Even as a manager, you might be entitled to more compensation if you work additional hours.
  • Employee Misclassification - Companies that intentionally misclassify a worker (such as an IT computer consultant or an inventory associate) as administrative, executive or professional to avoid paying overtime should be held accountable.
  • Unpaid Overtime - We represent clients in San Diego, Riverside and Los Angeles who have not been paid for their overtime work. Our attorneys will review the case to discover if your employer is deliberately modifying timecards, requiring off-the-clock work, or possibly misclassifying employees, including those employees working as maids and janitors or in the restaurant and hotel industry.
  • Expense Reimbursement Claims - Employees should be reimbursed for certain work-related expenses, such as work uniforms, company cell phones, and mileage.
  • Meal & Rest Breaks - California employers must provide non-exempt employees with an uninterrupted, 30-minute meal period for every five hours of work. To develop a strong case for clients in San Diego, Riverside and Los Angeles, our investigation may begin with a copy of your employee handbook and your individual time cards.
