Do You Know What To Do If You're a Victim of Wage Theft in Los Angeles County?

Our worker members live and work in Los Angeles, the wage theft capital. Knowing that fact is not enough to fight back and try to prevent future incidents of wage theft from happening. With workers losing over 26 million dollars a week in Los Angeles, it is a problem too big to ignore and be proactive about changing.

We, as part of the steering committee of the Los Angeles Coalition Against Wage Theft, can claim a victory in that the new minimum wage in LA City and County also come with enforcement. That means that we have new tools to make real the promise of a days' pay for a days' work.

Los Angeles County workers can now go to the Department of Business and Consumer Affairs to learn about your rights, responsibilities and to file a complaint.
