With the sluggish economy, many people have struggled to make ends meet.

Wage and hour mediation can help parties work through a variety of disputes, including those involving:
- Unpaid overtime
- Poor record keeping
- The Fair Labor Standards Act
- Minimum wage violations
- Meal and rest breaks
In California, overtime is calculated by the day and not by the week, like it is in many other parts of the country. That means that even if employees do not work over 40 hours in a week, they may be entitled to overtime for working more than eight hours in one day. In addition, there are regulations governing which employees can be paid a fixed salary and which need to be paid by the hour, affecting their eligibility for overtime.
