Wage and Hour DisputeAt SAC Attorneys LLP, we understand that wage and hour disputes can arise quickly and may affect businesses of all types. Such cases can take a variety of forms and can greatly impact both the company and the employee in question.

Protecting Companies in Silicon Valley

When relying on a team of employees, your workers deserve to be paid fairly and in accordance with local, state, and federal guidelines. If an employee is not receiving the pay to which he or she is entitled or has been forced to skip breaks, serious problems can arise. Most such cases involve employer violations of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). The lawyers at SAC Attorneys LLP have more than 50 years of combined legal experience and are adept at handling claims disputes related to:

  • Unpaid wages, including employees being forced to work “off the clock;”
  • Violation of overtime laws, including unpaid overtime and employees misclassified as exempt from the FLSA’s overtime requirements;
  • Missed or denied breaks or meal periods;
  • Minimum wage violations;
  • Workers misclassified as independent contractors; and
  • Any other compensation-related concerns.

We will work with you in identifying the source of the problem and help you decide the best way to proceed so that your interests are fully protected.

Client Reviews
Mr. Cai Is a Diligent Attorney. My sister and I were defendants in a civil litigation case. We hired James Cai and his law firm, SAC Attorneys LLP. Mr. Cai is a diligent attorney and responded to our questions in a timely fashion. He and his staff were very helpful in keeping us informed of the proceedings of the case and in explaining each step. Mr. Cai is also very conscientious of fees and costs, and avoided unnecessary charges. The results of the Summary Adjudication sided with us. The Court Trial resulted in the “Final Statement of Decision” and “Judgment after Court Trial” overwhelmingly siding with us. Cynthia F.
I Am Truly Impressed. After spending a significant amount of time, money and efforts with my previous counsel at a larger law firm without getting meaningful results, I transferred my employment matter to SAC Attorneys LLP. The attorneys there were able to understand the complex situations of my case and put together an aggressive litigation strategy. We were able to file a compelling complaint within a week and forced the opposing party, which was represented by one of the largest law firms in California, to make a substantial settlement offer shortly thereafter. I am truly impressed by the no nonsense and results oriented approach by SAC Attorneys LLP attorneys. A job well done! X. Gao
They Took Time to Understand Our Technology. I am the founder of a bioinformatics start-up in the Silicon Valley and chose SAC Attorneys LLP as our corporate counsels. Their attorneys have great experience with high tech start-ups and were able to offer a highly competitive service plan while not sacrificing a bit of their quality of services. They took time to understand our technology and provided value added services by introducing investors and job candidates to us. We regard our attorneys at SAC Attorneys LLP not only as our legal advisors but also our venture partners. Dr. Pete S.
