  • Home Office in California for a company in Florida, what DOL?

    My husband is claiming unpaid wages while working remotely for a company in Florida, he is a Computer Engineer, doing Home Office in LA, California.

    The paystubs held California Taxes, but were issued in Florida.

    What Department of Labor should we go?

    Thanks!

    Which state is he physically in?
    The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.

      Hello,

      He is in California, working from Home, Payroll taxes describe California as holder. But the company where he works is located in Florida, his contract was made and signed there.

      thanks

        The laws of the state in which he lives and works are the ones that apply, not the laws of the state in which the company is based.

        Which is good for you, because CA takes wage issues very seriously, whereas Florida does not even have a Department of Labor and defers all wage issues to either the US DOL (which will only support Federal minimum wage, plus overtime) or small claims court.

          Thank you so much, cbg. We'll refer to California DOL.

            CA DOL is called CA DLSE.
