Even Off The Clock, You Deserve Fair Pay

Last updated on August 26, 2020

It is against the law for employers to make employees work off the clock without compensation. Even so, far too many employers take advantage of their workers by pressuring them to put in additional hours for little to no pay.

If you have been working off the clock for your employer and need to recover unpaid wages and compensation, JCL Law Firm, APC, is here to help. Our employment law firm has more than a decade of experience and has recovered more than $30 million in compensation for employees of all industries. Work with us to seek the pay you deserve and hold your employer accountable for their actions.

What Counts As ‘Off-The-Clock’ Work?

California defines off-the-clock work as any work that a nonexempt employee performs without compensation. This applies to both salaried and hourly work in all industries. Some of the most common examples of off-the-clock work include:

  • Pre-shift or post-shift work, including prep and cleaning
  • Redoing a project to the employer’s satisfaction
  • Correcting errors
  • Working during a meal or rest break
  • Administrative work
  • Mandatory training sessions or meetings

JCL Law Firm, APC, has helped numerous clients receive pay for off-the-clock work. You can ask us whether you have a case by contacting us for a free consultation.

Your employer may even owe you overtime pay if you were working more than 40 hours per week. Learn more about how to recover overtime payment.
