Each day, it is likely that thousands of employees in California are denied wages lawfully owed them and will have no choice but to file a wage claim. Sometimes their employers do so unwittingly, but the vast majority know what they are doing. They figure that the non-payment of wages is a very effective way of cutting costs. This is especially true in a down economy.
Luckily for California employees, the law allows employees who are owed wages to reclaim the money owed them. Strauss Law Group, Palay Law Firm and their California wage claim lawyers know these laws very well.
