Common Wage Violations in California

California has some of the strongest employee protections in the country when it comes to wage and hour issues. Among other things, California employees have the right to meal and rest breaks, overtime after eight hours of work in a day, and a minimum wage that's higher than the federal standard.

California's minimum wage is $9 an hour until January 1, 2016, when it increases to $10 an hour. This rate is significantly higher than the current federal minimum wage of $7.25 an hour.

Employees are entitled to be paid the highest applicable minimum wage where they work, whether that’s the federal, state, or local rate. In California, some cities have passed laws adopting an even higher minimum wage. For example, San Francisco’s minimum wage is $12.25 per hour.
