- Q. I was working as a security officer. And my boss did not pay me for overtime, even though she was paid overtime for me.
- A: You can file a claim in Superior Court or with the Labor Commissioner. You will likely need a lawyer to help you navigate your claim in Superior Court. On the other hand, the Labor Commissioner offers a lot of self-help resources to allow you to file a claim yourself. However, there are some disadvantages to filing a claim through the Labor Commissioner. You should consult with an attorney who can help you determine the best course of action.
