If you are working a job in America, then you are owed a fair wage. If you come here on a visa, you might be nervous about bringing up discrepancies in your pay, but you shouldn't be.
The government can, and does, hold businesses accountable when they fail to pay according to visa program requirements.Take, for example, this case. A company in Southern California ended up paying out $48,193 to an employee who was working with them on an H-1B visa after it was found to have violated parts of the visa program.
Assigncorp, which is based in Glendale, California, was accused of paying less than the hourly rate required for the labor certification application for idle time in the visa program. Not making payments accordingly was a violation of federal law and led to the large payout to the employee.Assigncorp is a company that provides IT consulting services and had brought on a foreign worker within its ranks. The Wage and Hour Division district director of Los Angeles stated that this was an incident that needed to be handled to show that all people working should be paid what they're legally owed. The director went on to say that making businesses pay employees correctly is part of leveling the playing field for law-abiding employers.
Your wages are protected. If you work and provide a service to your employer, they should be good enough to follow the law and pay you accordingly. If they don't, you can file a claim and hold them accountable for their actions.
Between holidays, birthdays and other special occasions, your child likely receives dozens of toys each year. Most of the time, these additions only serve as a headache as you try to make room for them or get your child to put them away.
California traffic laws are there to protect you, from the moment you step on your bike to the instant your kickstand hits the ground. At the Law Offices of Mauro Fiore, Jr., we consider it part of our professional duty as attorneys to help people understand and uphold these laws. We believe that education for all drivers is nearly as important as proper protective gear for bikers: Both have the potential to prevent injury and save lives.
Although there are many traffic safety rules in place for both pedestrians and drivers, pedestrian accidents still happen often. A pedestrian accident can happen anywhere, at any time, and to anyone. It’s a hard pill to swallow – especially in a busy city like Los Angeles, where the hustle and bustle is constant. As a pedestrian, it is imperative that you take extra precautions to reduce the risk of a pedestrian accident as much as you can.
