Common types of wage claims in Van Nuys involve employees in the manufacturing industry. These individuals often are forced to purchase their own tools even though they make less than twice minimum wage. This means that their employer has to reimburse them for the cost of the tools going back as many as four years. If you are a San Fernando Valley employee who has been forced to buy tools for work but you make less than twice minimum wage, you can claim the amounts you paid for the tools in a wage claim, either by filing with the Van Nuys Labor Board/Commissioner or in civil court. See the pros and cons of filing with the Labor Commissioner vs. in civil court.

Remember, you can be represented by an attorney in your Van Nuys wage claim. You may need an experienced wage claim attorney to ensure that you can maximize your claim for unpaid wages, like unpaid overtime or unpaid commissions.

Strauss & Strauss will represent Van Nuys and San Fernando Valley employees in wage claims. We only get paid if we win your case. Contact us for a free wage claim consultation, or call us toll free at (805) 641-6600.

    1. When an employer terminates an employee, the employer must pay the employee his or her final paycheck on the date of the termination. The failure to do so can lead to a penalty of one day’s worth of wages up to a maximum of 30 days. Please contact our firm for more information.
