Experienced Inaccurate Wage Statements Attorneys in Beverly Hills & Rancho Cucamonga, California
Our Beverly Hills employment law attorneys at Mehtani Law Offices know that many California employees are less interested in their paystubs than they are in the amount on the actual check. For some, the amount is the same every pay period. For others, the amount changes each time they are paid, which requires closer inspection to ensure the wages and hours are correct, there were no meal or rest break violations, and they were paid for the overtime hours they worked.
No matter where you work in California, whether you are salary or hourly, or in which industry you are employed, your employer must issue accurate wage statements to all employees.
If your employer is unlawfully failing to issue accurate wage statements, contact our dedicated Los Angeles County employment law attorneys for help today. From the moment you contact our offices, you will gain immediate access to our skilled attorneys who have trained at powerhouse firms working for Fortune 50 employers in high-stakes employment litigation, without paying any upfront or out-of-pocket costs. If we do not win your case, you will pay nothing for our legal services.
What is My Employer Required to List on My Itemized Pay Statement?
California Law requires all employers to provide employees with an “accurate itemized statement” outlining the following:
- Gross wages earned.
- Total hours worked by the employee (with limited exceptions).
- The number of piece-rate units earned and any applicable piece rate if the employee is paid on a piece-rate basis.
- All deductions, provided that all deductions made on written orders of the employee may be aggregated and shown as one item.
- Net wages earned.
- The inclusive dates of the period for which the employee is paid.
- The name of the employee and only the last four digits of his or her social security number or an employee identification number other than a social security number.
- The name and address of the legal entity that is the employer and, if the employer is a farm labor contractor, as defined in subdivision (b) of Section 1682, the name and address of the legal entity that secured the services of the employer.
- All applicable hourly rates in effect during the pay period and the corresponding number of hours worked at each hourly rate by the employee, and if the employer is a temporary services employer as defined in Section 201.3, the rate of pay and the total hours worked for each temporary services assignment.
Failure to provide completely and accurately listed information on employees’ wage statements, even if all other categories of information are included, constitutes a violation of California’s employment laws. If this failure is occurring in your workplace, contact our experienced inaccurate wage statement lawyers in Beverly Hills for help holding your employer liable for your legal remedies today.
What Can I Gain From Filing an Inaccurate Wage Statement Claim Against My California Employer?
Wage statement violations, including failure to provide a wage statement, or failing to include any of the key information required by law — either as part of your paystub, or as a standalone statement in printed or electronic form — may be liable for the employer’s damages.
An employer that knowingly and intentionally fails to issue accurate wage statements is subject to a penalty payable to the employee that is equal to the greater of all actual damages or:
- $50 for the initial pay period in which a violation occurs.
- $100 for each violation in a subsequent pay period, not to exceed an aggregate penalty of four thousand dollars ($4,000).
- Court costs and reasonable attorney’s fees.
If an employer fails to include the necessary information on your wage statement(s) — including when the wage statement is inaccurate, for example, because the employer has forced the employee to work off-the-clock and therefore has failed to record all hours worked — our skilled inaccurate wage statement lawyers in Beverly Hills want to help you seek the recovery you deserve by law.
