California law is clear—any hours worked in excess of 8 hours in a day or 40 hours in a week are considered overtime, and must be paid accordingly. Whether you are a salary worker, commission earner, or are paid hourly, you are entitled to overtime pay for excess work time. When you have been denied overtime pay or are being asked to underreport hours, you may have an employment law claim.

"I asked a friend of mine who he would use as an employment attorney. He recommended Mr. Newman who was able to immediately talk with me. We spent considerable time on the phone. He was patient and understanding. I was able to receive a significant settlement within 90 days."
"I was afraid that if I hired an attorney to get me the overtime wages which I was entitled to that I would be fired. Instead, when I hired Alan Newman, I not only received a settlement but also my working condition was improved."
"Before I talked to an attorney, I was not sure whether I had a case. Mr. Newman explained to me the reasons why I had a case and I proceeded with him. He was able to get me an excellent result without having to go to trial. As he explained to me, his reputation was more important than the particular facts."
