San Francisco Labor Lawyer

San Francisco labor attorneyIf you’re an employee in California, you have a number of specific legal rights. At the federal level, the Fair Labor Standards Act governs wages, hours, and overtime. Those working in California have additional protection thanks to state labor and employment law. Nevertheless, some California employers may try to underpay you through various ruses or cheat you out of your overtime. If you believe you are being cheated or underpaid by an employer anywhere in northern California, call the experienced San Francisco employer retaliation attorneys at the law firm of Geonetta & Frucht. Employment lawyers can help employees understand their rights in the workplace and then fight aggressively to protect them. If we cannot reach a settlement for you through negotiation, we will take an employer to court. With our more than fifty combined years of legal experience, our San Francisco labor attorneys see to it that employers pay you properly.


Dishonest employers may change your time sheet or direct you to work off the clock; refuse to give breaks or lunches or deduct those hours even if you worked; or pay you straight time for overtime hours. These are all signs that an employer is out to cheat you. Employers who violate wage and hour regulations may be ordered by the court to pay you additional penalties. The experienced San Francisco labor attorneys at Geonetta & Frucht are skilled investigators; we will use every available legal tool to prove your claim and secure a negotiated agreement for you without a trial. If a negotiated agreement isn’t possible, we know how to advocate for you in the courtroom. We’ve done it for satisfied clients for decades.

We also advocate for the victims of compensation disputes, disability discrimination, pregnancy discrimination, sexual orientation discrimination, national origin discrimination, racial discrimination, sexual harassment and other forms of employment discrimination including wrongful termination and retaliation.
