Failure To Pay Overtime

Generally speaking, California employers must pay their non-exempt employees overtime compensation at the rate of 1.5 times a non-exempt employee’s regular rate of pay for all hours worked in excess of: (a) 40 hours in a single workweek; (b) 8 hours in a single workday; or (c) six consecutive days in a workweek.

If a non-exempt employee works more than 12 hours in a single workday or more than 8 hours on the seventh consecutive day of work in a single workweek, employers must pay twice the employee’s regular rate of pay.
