Belmont Minimum Wage Attorney

All California employees have a right to earn a minimum wage, as set by state and local governments.  Where a city or county has set a local minimum wage, the employee must be paid at that minimum wage - a wage greater than the current California minimum wage, as outlined below.

If an employer fails to pay an employee, including part-time and temporary employees, the proper local minimum wage, that employer has committed wage theft and could be liable to the employee for the thousands in unpaid wages, extensive penalties, and other money damages!
