A: Under California law, your employer must pay you in full for all hours worked. You must be paid on time, on the regularly scheduled payday. Along with your paycheck, your employer must also provide a wage statement detailing, among other things, your hours worked, rate of pay, and all deductions. If your employer fails to do so, you are entitled to recover your wages, and may also be able to recover additional damages and penalties.

You should consider contacting an employment lawyer to discuss your matter in more detail.
