At Romero Law, APC, our wage and hour law attorneys in Pasadena, California focus on helping our clients recover the compensation they are entitled to for the work they have done for their California employer, because we know that your job is how you support yourself, your family and build your future.
When an employer promises a certain type and amount of compensation and withholds our client’s pay — in any capacity — they are stealing from their employees, and that is illegal.
We are here to help our clients reclaim what is theirs.
Our Los Angeles County wage and hour attorneys pursue employers for employee compensation errors under both the California Labor Code laws and the federal Fair Labor Standards Act, so our clients get the pay they deserve.
We care about what we do and the people we represent, which is why we not only take complex cases no one else will, we turn them into success stories.

Protecting Eligible California Employees from Wage & Hour Violations
California employees have the right to be paid under the laws that apply to their employment, starting with our state’s minimum wage requirements.
|Date||Employers with 26 or More Employees||Employers with 25 or Less Employees|
|2022 Minimum Wage||$14.00/hour||$15.00/hour|
|As of January 1, 2023||$15.50/hour||$15.50/hour|
Next, we seek the enforcement of all benefits non-exempt California employees are entitled to, including meal and rest breaks and overtime wages for those who work more than 40 hours in a workweek or eight hours in a day.
California employers find deceptive ways to avoid paying their employees the wage and hour compensation they are entitled to using the following tactics:
- Altering timesheets
- Asking employees to work while off the clock
- Automatically clocking employees out for meal and rest breaks, or denying them altogether
- Paying salaries for hourly positions
- Demanding workers show up early, but not allowing them to clock in upon arrival
- Not paying employees for travel time when working at an offsite location
