If you are a manager, sales consultant or independent contractor, you face unique employment law challenges. At Laturno & Graves, we understand how federal and California employment laws apply to your position and can provide you with the skilled employment law representation you need. We have a proven record of success representing clients in San Diego County and throughout Southern California.
Among the many employment law issues facing managers is misclassification and unpaid overtime. Many employees are salaried (exempt) and managers by title, but are tasked with duties that should make them eligible for overtime (nonexempt). If you are classified as a manager but routinely find yourself running a cash register, stocking shelves or similar duties, your employer may be violating the law.
We represent sales consultants in all employment-related matters, including claims involving unpaid wages and commissions.
Employers must generally withhold taxes on wages paid to employees. They must also provide workers' compensation benefits when an employee suffers an on-the-job injury. They do not owe the same legal duty to independent contractors. For this reason, employers sometimes misclassify employees as independent contractors, because it costs them less money.
