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.
