Employee Misclassification Attorneys in Chino Hills

An employer may purposely misclassify employees in order to get around paying the legal rate of pay, overtime, insurance, workers compensation, and taxes.Chino Hills Employee Misclassification Lawyers

The following examples of employment misclassification are not uncommon:

An hourly worker (with non-exempt status) is improperly designated as exempt (salaried)

OR

An individual who should be designated as an hourly employee is improperly hired with independent contractor status.

Employment Misclassification Attorneys and Independent Contractor Misclassification Lawyers at Rupal Law can help you determine if your employer stepped outside the law on this issue. The proper legal designation of a job is determined by using case law and the labor codes. In these matters, your job title and any paperwork you may have signed to affirm your job status regarding classification becomes irrelevant.

Non-Exempt, Hourly Employees

Sometimes, employers are financially motivated to break the law and misclassify a worker. For example, an hourly employee must be compensated for every hour of work. To comply with California law, this includes the appropriate overtime pay and the specified number of rest periods and meal breaks.

If you believe your job has been misclassified, our knowledgeable Employee Misclassification Attorneys will perform a thorough review of your duties while comparing your official employment status in order to determine if a misclassification is present.

Federal laws differ from California laws when defining non-exempt and exempt employees. Due to these differences, large companies with out-of-state offices may try to shield their misdeeds under the federal laws. However, in these cases, California law most often applies. Employers who violate misclassification laws face monetary damages and extensive fines.

Exempt, Salaried Employees

Employees who are paid with a salary are properly designated based upon their job duties and whether the job requires independent decisions. The following positions are commonly classified as exempt:


Individuals in exempt positions have a greater level of independence and responsibility. If you are classified as an exempt employee, and you are expected to consult a manager for approval or for additional direction needed to complete a job duty, your position may not be accurately classified.

Experienced Chino Hills Employment Law Lawyer Mandeep Rupal and associates at Rupal Law are prepared to analyze your employment circumstances to determine whether employee misclassification is a factor. Contact our office for a free consultation.

Independent Contractors

For independent contractors, the jobs are generally specialized and provided to at least two companies. Independent contractors are not included in traditional employee benefits, and the employer does not deduct taxes from their compensation. Instead, these workers are issued a 1099 each year.

Independent contractors are able to accept or refuse projects, and they determine when and where the work will be completed.
