You should be paid for your work – it’s that simple. California’s Labor Code guarantees your right to your earned wages. Unfortunately, employers do not always know—or care—about California’s compensation laws. When a company refuses to accurately pay wages, it’s up to you to file an action and hold your employer responsible.
- Overtime Pay Violations;
- Minimum Wage Violations;
- Meal and Rest Break Violations;
- Unpaid Off-the-Clock Work;
- Misclassification; and
- Failure to Pay Timely Wages.
There’s no such thing as a “trivial” violation of the California Labor Code. If you think you or your co-workers have been subjected to any of these illegal actions, contact Hillier Law to schedule your free consultation. You’ll have the opportunity to speak with an experienced employment law attorney who can explain the law and what you can expect in litigation.
That means employers (and even prospective employers!) cannot discriminate against you because of a “protected characteristic,” such as:
- Sex and/or Gender;
- Age; and
Hillier Law has experience prosecuting actions against employers for illegal discrimination. If you believe an employer or prospective employer has discriminated against you, contact us today to schedule your free consultation.

Retaliation in the workplace occurs when a company fires, demotes or otherwise acts against an employee because of a report of illegal activity.
- Retaliation for reporting harassment or discrimination;
- Retaliation for reporting illegal activity;
- Retaliation for refusing to participate in illegal activity; and
- Retaliation for reporting wage theft.
Federal and California laws protect employees from unlawful retaliation, but that doesn’t mean employers always follow those laws. If you believe you have been subjected to unlawful retaliation, please contact us today to schedule your free consultation.
