If an employee thinks that his or her former employer violated their rights to receive overtime pay for working more than 8 hour days or 40 hour weeks, employees have two primary legal options. 

1- Contact a overtime lawyer in California

2- File a claim with the California Labor Board

There are several advantages to contacting a private overtime lawyer for employees, however. Foremost, overtime attorneys can seek damages going back 4 years whereas the labor board can only seek damages going back 3 years. In addition, overtime lawyers can seek double damages under the FLSA whereas no such damages exist under federal overtime laws. Most importantly, hiring a private overtime wage attorney means that the employee does not have to handle the issue alone, but rather with the help of an experienced and committed overtime law firm.
