Overtime Pay

California labor laws entitle employees to overtime pay for all hours in excess of 8 in a day or 40 in a week. If you work more than 12 hours in a day, you are entitled to double-time. Additionally, if you work 7 straight days, then you are entitled to double-time for everything over 8 hours on the 7th day.

Helping You Get What You Deserve

Employers will often try to get around overtime obligations by classifying you as “exempt” and paying you a salary, thinking that somehow precludes you from any entitlement to overtime. However, overtime “exemptions” are based on the job duties, not the whim of the employer. Additionally, it is generally impossible for an employer to classify you as “exempt” unless you earn twice the minimum wage, or $49,920 per year.

If you have been denied overtime payment or wrongly classified as a salaried employee, you deserve proper compensation for your labor and any services you have provided.
