The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) has been protecting employees since 1937. Under its two central provisions — the minimum wage requirement and the overtime provision — employers are obligated to pay required wages and, for non-exempt employees, pay overtime when they work for more than 40 hours in a week. At Arthur Kim Law Firm, we are well qualified to determine if you have a valid wage, hour or overtime claim against your employer, and we are prepared to obtain the payment you’re owed for the work you’ve performed. We represent clients throughout California in these and other employment law cases to ensure they are fully compensated for the work they provide.

Our firm strives to get workers the fair treatment and wages they are entitled to by law.
Even when employees know they have been underpaid, the thought of bringing a legal action against their employer can be intimidating. But it is important for workers to know their rights and hold their employers accountable. Our firm is intimately familiar with both state and federal standards in wage and overtime law and will file a claim against your company when they’ve violated your rights. Under the FLSA, it is unlawful for an employer to fire or discriminate against an employee who has filed a complaint or participated in an FLSA legal proceeding. If you believe you have been retaliated against for challenging your employer’s payment practices, we will take prompt action and pursue justice on your behalf.
Our attorneys will meticulously analyze the circumstances of your wage, hour or overtime claim to determine whether a negotiated settlement or litigation is the better option. As skilled negotiators, we can often reach a settlement that saves you time and money, but we are always prepared to enforce your rights at trial when we need to. Regardless of your course of action, our trial experience and track record of successfully handling wage and overtime claims provide you with the security of knowing your case is being handled by a seasoned professional.
