What if my employer retaliates against me because I told him he owes me reporting time pay?
If you are retaliated against or discriminated against by your employer, you may file a discrimination/retaliation claim with the Labor Commissioner’s Office. You may also file suit against your employer in court. For retaliation and discrimination in any manner, you may file a discrimination/retaliation complaint or file a lawsuit in court. An example of retaliation or discrimination would be if your employer fired you because you threatened to file a reporting time pay wage claim in California.
