Helping Workers Recover Unpaid Wages And Compensation

Last updated on May 29, 2020

The minimum wage exists to prevent employers from exploiting workers. In California, employers are supposed to pay their employees at least $12 per hour. Sadly, the minimum wage law does not always prevent employers from underpaying employees.

If your employer is not paying you the minimum wage, you deserve the help of an employment lawyer. At JCL Law Firm, APC, our team advocates for the rights of San Diego-area workers. We will uphold your right to earn the minimum wage and will seek the additional compensation that you deserve.

Do Tipped Employees Have The Right To The Minimum Wage?

If your employer has told you that they do not have to pay you the minimum wage because you receive tips, they are wrong. In California, employers cannot count employees’ tips toward the minimum hourly rate. The state considers this an unlawful tipping practice. If you receive tips at your job, your employer must still pay you the full minimum wage of $12 per hour.
