What should I do if my employer doesn’t pay me for my overtime wages?
If your employer doesn’t pay you for your earned overtime wages, you can file an overtime wage claim in California with the Labor Commissioner’s Office. You can also file an overtime wage claim lawsuit against your employer in court to receive your lost wages. In addition, if you no longer are employed with the employer who owes you lost overtime, you may file a claim for a waiting time penalty.
