Common types of wage claims in Los Angeles involve employees in the professional services industry who work in offices. These individuals often are misclassified as exempt from overtime, doubletime, or lunch breaks. However, due to the nature of their work, which usually includes office administrative duties like making photocopies, scanning documents, and answering phones, these individuals must be paid overtime and doubletime and must receive meal periods. Often, misclassified employees can claim thousands of dollars in unpaid overtime — their wage claims can be among the biggest. If you are a Los Angeles employee who has been misclassified as exempt, you can claim unpaid wages in a wage claim, either by filing with the Los Angeles Labor Board/Commissioner or in civil court.
