Fremont Minimum Wage Attorney

California employees have a right to earn minimum wage. Minimum wage is set by Federal, State, and Local laws. As you may know, when it comes to laws, the more local the laws, the more restrictive they are. This is because local governments are allowed to narrow the law, but not expand it.

As such, Fremont has decided to issue its own local minimum wage ordinance, which is currently higher than the California minimum wage requirements. Regardless of which law, employers often fail to pay their employees the bare minimum wage. This results in the employee losing out on thousands of dollars in lost/stolen wages. Wage theft can occur in a number of ways, for example, when an employer intentionally misclassifies an employee as an independent contractor, incorrectly misclassifies an employee as being an exempt-salaried employee, or fails to pay the employee for all their time spent working.
