OTHER FORMS YOU CAN USE WITH THIS FORM:
A My Job Claim.com Settlement Demand for Wages, Overtime and Penalties is made even stronger if it follows the filing of a PAGA complaint with the LWDA. The employer must now deal with a well reasoned settlement demand and the looming PAGA complaint. If you are able to reach a settlement of your wage and hour claims with your employer use the My Job Claim.com Settlement Agreement to resolve your claims.
Be careful how you calculate your hourly wage. If you make minimum wage, make sure to check that you are making the appropriate updated minimum wage for your area. Make sure to include all "off the clock work" you may have worked also. If you are claiming you are owed unpaid overtime remember its 1.5 x you hourly rate for all hours over 8 and double time for all hours over 12. For any missed meal or rest breaks, you can claim one hour's pay.
Always proofread for typos and format issues to make the letter as professional looking as possible.
