When you’ve been mistreated on the job, asserting your legal rights can be difficult. A strong advocate can protect your ability to work in a healthy environment and fight for you to obtain the compensation you’re entitled to. At Castillo Harper, APC in Riverside, we represent area employees in litigation and administrative proceedings, including discrimination cases and disciplinary actions brought against police officers and other civil workers. Our attorneys provide honest, forceful representation to clients in a wide range of employment fields.
Wage disputes can range from simple misclassification errors to complex and time-consuming cases where employers have deliberately violated the law. We can clearly and precisely explain your employment rights under CA law and the FLSA. Our attorneys have recovered earnings and other damages related to:
- Misclassification of employees as exempt from wage and hour laws
- Unpaid overtime and sick days
- Violation of minimum wage laws
- Unpaid lunch and rest periods in violation of the law
- Independent contractor rights
- Late pay
- Unpaid reimbursement for work-related expenses

Our firm strives to get workers the fair treatment they are entitled to by law.
Even when employees think they have been underpaid or have not been paid the wages required by the FLSA, the thought of facing an employer is tinged with apprehension. Our attorneys are intimately familiar with both state and federal standards in wage and overtime law and will zealously work to protect your rights. Furthermore, under the FLSA, it is unlawful for an employer to fire or discriminate against an employee who has filed a complaint or participated in an FLSA legal proceeding.
