And while these prestigious and other financial services firms make millions and millions of dollars, their employees, such as property appraisers, are misclassified so these affluent companies do not have to pay overtime.

According to the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), an employee who works more than 40 hours a week or 8 hours per day is entitled to overtime pay.  This includes Property Appraisers who regularly work up to 70 hours per week and often work through their lunch period.

Misclassifying these employees, such as a property appraiser, as exempt administrators, denies them regular pay for lunch hours worked and overtime pay for hours worked beyond their regular work hours.

If you work as a Property Appraiser for a different company and are not being paid overtime, call an experienced Los Angeles labor attorney today at Blumenthal, Nordrehaug & Bhowmik at (310) 981-3918.  Blumenthal, Nordrehaug & Bhowmik is a California employment law firm with offices located in San Diego, San Francisco and Los Angeles.
