Wage Theft Judgment Dashboard

This dashboard provides you with the ability to search wage claims judgments issued by the California Division of Labor Standards Enforcement (Labor Commissioner) for cases that originated out of their San Diego Office. 

A wage claim judgment is when the Labor Commissioner decides an employer has not paid the employee wages as required under the California Labor Code, for example not being paid overtime or being paid less than minimum age. This is referred to as "wage theft". If the employer does not pay the wage claim judgment, the Labor Commissioner will notify the local Superior Court and a legal judgment is filed against the employer. 

The dashboard also allows the user to obtain information about the employer who violated the Labor Code, including the employer's name, type of industry of the employer, date of judgment, and judgment amount. 

For further instructions on how to utilize the dashboard please review the Wage Theft Judgment PowerbI Instructions


*Disclaimer: This public data was obtained from the California Division of Labor Standards and Enforcement (DLSE) website. Per DLSE:

"Once the judgment is issued, the judgment balance is shown as due in the Labor Commissioner's records. This amount does not reflect post-judgment interest, costs or other amounts that may be added to the judgment after issuance. Furthermore, this does not reflect any payments that may have been made since the judgment was issued. Defendants often make payments to claimants directly without the knowledge of the Labor Commissioner's Office. Thus, judgments shown as open/unpaid may have been paid in whole or in part, if the defendant did not notify the Labor Commissioner that the claim has been subsequently satisfied."

Current data will be removed and replaced with updated data on a monthly basis. The Office of Labor Standards and Enforcement is not responsible for the accuracy of this information. If you believe any of the information is inaccurate, please contact DLSE at 833-LCO-INFO (833) 526-4636 or DLSE2@dir.ca.gov
