Paul Rodriguez is the Senior Deputy Labor Commissioner at the Santa Barbara office of the Division of Labor Standards Enforcement (DLSE), more commonly known as the California State Labor Commissioner. Paul, a Ventura County native, has worked for the DLSE in labor law enforcement for over 25 years. As the Senior Deputy, Paul supervises the Wage Claim Unit which investigates and adjudicates individual wage claims filed by employees against employers. Paul has been involved in some notable court cases arising out of the Santa Barbara office, including being the Assigned Deputy in Hernandez v. Mendoza (1988) 199 Cal.App.3d 721, 245 Cal.Rptr. 36 which stands for the proposition that when an employer fails to keep and/or submit proper time records, the employee's own records, reconstruction or testimony from his/her present memory may be sufficient to establish the hours worked. In addition, Paul was the Field Investigator in the investigation of a wage dispute in the agricultural fields in Santa Maria, which was the underlying case leading to Martinez v. Combs (2010) 49 Cal.4th 35, 231 P.3d 259, 109 Cal.Rptr.3d 514 in which the court analyzed and defined employment relationships.
