Computer Security

Employment Law Lawyers Working for Information Security Staff

Computer security specialists are primarily responsible for planning, coordinating and maintaining information.  Computer security specialists are often paid a fixed salary and not paid overtime wages for working more than eight hours in a workday or forty hours in a workweek.  In an effort to gain an unfair advantage on labor costs over competitors, California businesses often cheat technology workers and computer security specialists out of wages and other state and federal employment rights. This treatment of employees is not only immoral, but also illegal.

At Blumenthal, Nordrehaug & Bhowmik, our California employment law attorneys represent technology and computer workers who are subjected to illegal employer pay practices involving:


  • Paying computer security specialists fixed salaries and no overtime wages for working more than 8 hours in a day or forty hours in a week
  • Treating information systems security workers as exempt from overtime or as independent contractors
  • Failing to reimburse information technology protection employees for equipment, licenses, training and other certifications
  • Failing to pay IT and IS security for remaining “on-call” or for working “off-the-clock”
  • Failing to record and pay data security analysts for time spent attending meetings and training
