Thank you, Joseph. So, let me see if I have this right, I can file with Labor Board for misclassification of employment status and for rest and meal breaks, correct? Also, I can dismiss my attorney, but do I dismiss my attorney and the pending lawsuit, after I have filed with the Labor Board? Also, can an attorney file a lien with the Labor Board for atty. fees and costs? I have been handling all the paperwork with the IRS and EDD. EDD Special Unit has just recently corrected by my working statuts as an emloyee and not a an "independent contractor"; they have depoisted money into my fund, and should be receiving benefits shortly. I still have the IRS pending. What is the Statutute of Lijmitation in this case? I would like to get my rest and meal breaks that I was not allowed during these five years. Thank you.
Hi Joseph, I emailed you a little bit ago, and have not received an answer. Let my try again. My question is does the Labor Board apply penalties to rest and meal breaks? If so, what are the appropriate penalties for such? Thank you, Joseph. Lily
