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.
