About Labor Commission Proceedings For Overtime And Penalties
Employers may face legal claims in the Superior Court of California or claims brought before the California Department of Industrial Relations — Division of Labor Standards Enforcement, commonly known as the Labor Commission. Although Labor Commission proceedings are administrative in nature and less formal than court proceedings, having an experienced legal advocate in your corner can help make all the difference.

Defense Of Employers In Labor Commission Proceedings
We have defended numerous small businesses in San Diego and elsewhere in Southern California before the Labor Commission. An employee may file many types of complaints before the commission, including those involving:
- Misclassification of employees as salary exempt
- Overtime pay
- Unpaid wages
- Meal and rest period violations
- Waiting time penalties
A complaint brought before the Labor Commission may actually benefit an employer because it is less expensive than going to court and disputes can be resolved more expeditiously. However, the Labor Commission’s authority is limited. Whether you are going before the commission or the courts, you can rely on our more than three decades of experience to help see you through, from filings to hearings to appeals, if necessary.
