Fair Compensation Is Worth Fighting For

Some employers will do whatever it takes to cheat their employees out of what they are legally entitled to receive. We do not want you to be subjected to your employer’s illegal compensation practices any longer.

At Le Clerc & Le Clerc LLP, we know how stressful it can be to take legal action against your employer. Money can be tight, and anxieties can be high. That is all the more reason to contact an attorney to take over your case and the battle you face. We will support you during the process, so you have one less thing to worry about when pursuing fair pay for your work.

San Francisco Fair Compensation Laws

Multiple laws protect your right to fair pay in San Francisco, California. These include federal, state, and municipal regulations designed to ensure you earn enough to live on and receive it in a timely fashion. Some of the most critical include:

  • Federal laws like the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) set a minimum wage for the entire country and mandate overtime for non-exempt workers. The Equal Pay Act requires all workers receive equal pay for equal work. 
  • California laws set the minimum wage higher than the federal limit and reinforce the Equal Pay Act.
  • San Francisco laws set the minimum wage at $16.99 as of July 1st, 2022. They also require employers to provide paid sick leave to all workers, including temporary and part-time employees.

What Counts as Unfair Compensation?

If your employer is not compensating you per federal or state laws or your employment contract, you are not being fairly compensated. At Le Clerc & Le Clerc LLP, we handle a wide variety of compensation issues, including but not limited to the following:

  • Bonuses: If your employer has promised you extra pay for achieving a specific result, that is a non-discretionary bonus. If you meet the requirements and your employer withholds the bonus, you may have grounds for a compensation claim.
  • Commissions: If your company has underpaid, delayed, or miscalculated your commissions, they are not compensating you fairly.
  • Equal Pay: Companies cannot discriminatorily pay workers differently for doing the same work.
  • Overtime Pay for Salespeople: Most salespeople are eligible for overtime unless paid with commissions that meet California’s specific definition. If you don’t receive overtime as a salesperson, you may be underpaid.
  • Layoffs & Furloughs: Employers must meet specific requirements when laying off or furloughing workers. Your company might have violated your right to fair compensation if it did not meet these requirements.
