Database Administrators

Employment Law Lawyers Committed to Helping Systems Database Administrators

In the current modern era of business, many employers in California are looking for employees who can install and maintain databases. Striving to stay ahead of the competition, these employer’s often look to exploit technology workers such as database administrators by denying them the full amount of money and wages they are entitled to under the state’s labor and employment laws.

At Blumenthal, Nordrehaug & Bhowmik, we represent database administrators who are paid a salary and not paid overtime wages for working more than 8 hours in a workday or 40 hours in a workweek. We have the skill and experience to litigate state labor code lawsuits as well as federal wage-and-hour cases. If you are or were a database administrator responsible for these types of job duties, call our labor lawyers today to see if you have a valid claim to recover wages, salaries and damages:


  • Enter data into a computer
  • Integrate data from old systems into a new system.
  • Test and modify the systems
  • Troubleshoot system problems
  • coordinate security measures with network administrators

Database Administrators usually are responsible for determining the methods of organizing and storing data. This involves identifying user requirements and setting up unique computer databases. It may also entail testing and coordinating systems, ensuring that the system works properly, and making any modifications necessary. Database administrators must understand the platform that the database runs on. Data Analysts are similar to system administrators in that they sometimes install and troubleshoot system security and coordinate security measures.  
Our labor law attorneys are prepared to provide legal advice to IT data programmers in actions involving violations of labor laws such as :


  • Wrongful Termination
  • Retaliation
  • Incorrectly classifying database administrators as exempt from overtime
  • Improperly treating Data Programmers as Independent Contractors
  • Failing to reimburse database administrators for software, tools and equipment
  • Not paying database administrators for “on-call” time or working through breaks
