Requirements related to wages and hours are covered under both federal and state laws. In fact, California’s wage and hour laws are some of the strongest in the country. Examples of situations that would prompt a wage claim include not being paid minimum wage, not being paid in a timely manner, not being provided with meal and rest breaks, being required to work off the clock, having money owed to the employer deducted from a paycheck, and not being paid for all hours worked plus unused and unpaid vacation hours upon termination of employment.
