How much time do I have to file an overtime claim?

There are important time limits for filing wage and hour claims in California. The statute of limitations for filing an overtime claim is typically at least three years from the date the wages were earned. In most cases, employees can recover up to four years of unpaid wages, plus interest and penalties, prior to the date of filing an action.

If you miss the deadline for filing a wage claim, you may no longer have the right to recover unpaid wages from your employer. If you suspect you have not been paid all due wages, overtime, or commissions, contact an experienced San Francisco employment lawyer right away. McCormack Law Firm can advise you of your rights and help you obtain the overtime you are owed.

This law firm was the only one to answer the phone out of the 15-20 law firms that I called that day. I had a wrongful termination case and Bryan really took the time to listen and understand what happened in my situation, and he knows the law to a T. – Shanic M.

I was owed wages and overtime and my employer refused to pay me. So I hired them to file a lawsuit. Bryan easily understood my very complicated case and I am happy with the results. – Ebi Z.

I didn’t have to pay anything, the firm took the whole risk of managing the case. Through the 14 months, Bryan always kept me updated, was very responsive and patient to questions I had. We achieved a resolution out of court in my favor, making me even happier about the experience. – Peter S.

I can honestly say that my experience with Bryan was all the way positive from day one… We had very high expectations about our case and in the end we got what we hoped for. – Roger J.

I won my trial and I got more than I expected. Everyone in the office is so nice and helpful. Even after everything was finished I could call a few weeks after and ask questions to make sure I was protected and they are more than helpful. – Husain N.

I never had to pay Bryan anything up front, nor was ever pressured to settle early. We ended up settling morning of the trial. Bryan is a really sharp, aggressive, seasoned attorney and knew the law inside and out about whistleblower cases. – Kyle B.
