    Lawyer agrees

    Answered . If your employer has 5 or more employees you may have a potential claim but with less than 5 employees you don't get much protection, except for issues involving proper payment of wages, including meal and rest periods, overtime...

    Best of luck.

    Answered . You have rights under both statutory, which provide for an award of attorneys fees, and constitutional rights. The statutory rights as an employee require at least 5 employees. However, even if your employer has less than 5 employees, you have rights under the California constitution.

    If your employer is requiring you to be available 24 hours a day 7 days a week, the employer should be paying you for that time.

    If your employer has 5 or more employees, you can file a FREE complaint with the Department of Fair Employment and Housing at:
