All employees deserve to be paid fairly, fully, and on time for their hard work. In California, there are many state and federal laws in place to protect employees when it comes to their pay and working hours. However, there are many unfortunate scenarios when employers violate these laws, resulting in them intentionally taking advantage of their employees time and money. This is usually done out of greed because employers may want to cut corners to save themselves money.
