For more than 14 years, our lawyers at the Law Offices of Kevin T. Barnes have fought for employees throughout California. We have a thorough understanding of the California Labor Code and know when employers are not compliant.

Unfair Uniform Deductions
At the Law Offices of Kevin T. Barnes, our attorneys have represented hundreds of employees from a variety of companies, including security and pluming industries. In these professions, employees are required to wear uniforms. Employers are responsible to reimburse employees for their uniforms. If employers require uniforms to be professionally cleaned, the employer is accountable to pay for this. When someone is fired, the employee’s final paycheck should include reimbursement for their uniform, as well as overtime and other pay owed.
