Lawyers For Minimum Wage Violations

A contract employment agency placed Josh on the night shift at a large manufacturing company in Los Angeles. When he received his first paycheck, he calculated that his actual gross hourly rate (before deductions) amounted to less than the federal minimum wage of $7.25 per hour — and far less than the mandatory minimum wage of $10.50 an hour in Los Angeles. He was told the rest of the money went to pay agency fees. When he filed a formal complaint with the Division of Labor Standards Enforcement, the employment agency removed him from the job assignment.
