What Are the Laws On Overtime in California?

California and federal law are very clear on when employers are supposed to pay overtime wages to certain non-exempt employees. This applies to all types of non-exempt employees, whether they are paid salary, hourly wages, or commission.

Under the law, overtime wages are determined by the following:

  • Exceeding 8 hours: Increase by one and a half of the regular pay rate
  • 6 consecutive days: Increase by one and a half of the regular pay rate
  • Exceeding 12 hours: Double the regular pay rate
  • 6 days of 8+ hours: Double the regular pay rate

If you notice that your paychecks do not reflect these standards, you need to speak up. Our San Diego employment law attorney can review your situation right away and help you determine whether or not you have a valid wage and hour case.

Overtime Law Frequently Asked Questions

Am I eligible to receive overtime pay?

Every non-exempt employee is entitled to receive overtime wages. If you believe you haven’t been given the proper amount for your extra hours, we can help.

Can I receive overtime if I am a salary employee?

Yes! So long as you are not an exempt employee who exercises independent business judgement or manages other employees, you can be eligible for overtime wages.

What if I work more than 40 hours a week but not more than 7 hours a day?

You can still be entitled to overtime wages so long as you are exceeding the 40 hours a week minimum.

What if my employer asks me to log out and remain at work?

This is still considered overtime work, even if your hours aren’t recorded. Keep track of your hours so that you can prove to the court that you haven’t been paid for your overtime.

How long do I have to file an overtime claim?

The statute of limitations is three years, but can be extended by a year in some cases.

I don’t work at my old job anymore. Can I still file a claim?

Yes. Even if you don’t work with the employer who denied you overtime anymore, you can still file a claim for overtime wages.
