San Diego employers should have a strong partnership with a San Diego wage and hour attorney who can also advise on all employer-related disputes and issues. The Lawyer for Employers team provides sound counsel for employers. We do not represent employees. Our legal team works with your business to ensure compliance with all of the federal, state and local labor laws and regulations associated with your industry. We ensure compliance internally and externally to prevent government penalization and employee disputes and lawsuits.
Wage and hour litigation has skyrocketed in the past few years. San Diego employers are required to take extra steps to ensure that all employment laws are followed, and that extensive documentation exists to fend off future lawsuits. We have seen cases of former employees coming back to sue an employer after six months or more of voluntarily leaving the company for unpaid overtime claims. New federal guidelines for overtime eligibility have forced San Diego employers to review compensation plans and ensure that payment strategies meet San Diego’s unique minimum wage, while complying with federal wage and hour laws and overtime regulations.
Our San Diego wage and hour attorney will help you to review and update existing employment documentation. Every written contract and communication between your company and your employees must be carefully crafted. The prevention of disputes and lawsuits begins with crucial documents such as the offer letter, employment contract, employee manual and policies and procedures. These must consistently remain in compliance with actual practices within your organization. Management must be carefully trained and monitored to ensure consistent application of your company’s policies and procedures.
