Folsom Labor and Employment Law Firm

We represent employees who have not been paid the full wages, including overtime pay, meal break pay, commissions, bonuses, vacation pay, expense reimbursements and other sums that their employers owe them. In appropriate cases, we also have sought penalties for Labor Code violations, including the failure to pay employees on time upon termination or during the course of their employment.

Additionally, we have served as counsel on behalf of consumers who have paid their hard-earned money for products that are defective or do not deliver as promised. One such case from the financial sector involved “callable certificates of deposit,” financial instruments that tricked seniors into parting with their access to their savings for far longer than the time periods typically associated with traditional bank time deposit accounts.

Contact us today if you need legal assistance with any of the following:

  • Class actions representing employees and consumers
