Overtime Violations in California
Federal law requires overtime pay only if employees work more than 40 hours a week and California law imposes this same requirement.
In addition, California employees are entitled to earn regular overtime (time and a half, or 50% on top of their regular hourly rate) if they work more than eight hours in a day.
The same rate applies for the first eight hours of work on a seventh consecutive workday. California law provides double time to employees (twice their regular hourly rate) if they work more than 12 hours in a workday or more than eight hours on a seventh consecutive workday.
