Nearly A Century Of Combined Experience Efficient and Effective Strategies to Resolve Transactional Matters and Legal Disputes

Stockton Wage And Hour Claims Attorneys

It's the exchange that is at the heart of every employment relationship: Workers agree to perform labor for their employers, and employers in turn pay workers the agreed-upon wage.

While simple in concept, in practice even this fundamental aspect of workplace relations can invite disagreement and, in some cases, even legal claims. An effective lawyer in this area of employment law understands cases from both sides of disputes, and has successfully represented the interests of both businesses and their workers by drawing on experience advocating for both sides. If you are involved in a dispute with either your employees or employer that concerns wages, the attorneys of Malm Fagundes LLP can help pursue a resolution that maximizes your financial position.

While some cases are best (or only) resolved through extensive litigation, many more can be successfully resolved through negotiation or other means that require less investment of time and financial resources. Beginning in your initial consultation, we will lay out a strategy to help you come out ahead, regardless of which side to a wage and hour claim you are on.

Our firm handles the full range of legal claims that arise under state and federal laws concerning payment of wages. These include:

  • Failure to pay the minimum wage in California
  • Unpaid overtime
  • Delayed or denied paychecks
