Common types of wage claims filed in San Jose involve employees in the software industry, many of whom are computer programmers who do not make more than $41.00 per hour. By law, employees in the computer software field who do not make more than $41 per hour are non-exempt, meaning they must be paid overtime, receive meal periods, and more. If computer programmers who make less than $41.00 per hour are not paid overtime or given meal periods, they can seek the full amount of these unpaid wages, plus penalties, in a wage claim. They can file their wage claim either with the San Jose Labor Commissioner or in civil court. See the pros and cons of filing with the Labor Commissioner vs. in civil court.
