Our seasoned San Diego wage and hour attorneys have decades of experience in these matters. We deploy a successful series of strategies that is designed to drive the dispute or lawsuit to a successful conclusion in the shortest possible time frame and in a cost-effective manner. We counsel San Diego employers regarding existing policies and procedures as well as their management practices to ensure compliance with all federal and California wage and hour laws and regulations. We help San Diego employers to develop strategies to reduce or eliminate unpaid overtime disputes. This includes precautions to eliminate access to work emails and company systems after-hours and on the weekend. Many former employees are attempting to sue previous employers claiming they were “forced” or “expected” to work after hours or on the weekends without pay, and use cell phone records and emails to document this “violation” of wage and hour laws.

Our San Diego wage and hour attorneys aggressively defend employers when disputes or litigation arises, working to negotiate a quick and cost-efficient resolution that reflects our client’s established goals.
