Workers in Newport Beach deserve fair pay for the time they put in. Not only does this include employers abiding by California’s minimum wage laws, but it also includes employers paying required overtime.
What are the requirements for overtime pay?
When those requirements are met, workers are supposed to receive 1.5 times their regular hourly rate. For those who work more than 12 hours in a day, they should receive double their hourly rate.
Not all workers are paid by the hour, but salaried employees are also eligible for overtime pay (unless they are exempt – see below). Calculating a salaried employee’s overtime is done by using a formula to determine their hourly rate based on their annual salary.
Any employer who generates more than $500,000 in annual sales falls under the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and is bound by overtime laws. For smaller companies, workers are still generally going to be protected under California’s labor laws.
There are employees who are exempt from the overtime requirement, including:
Many employers use deceptive practices to avoid paying overtime, including having employees work through require breaks, having them clock out and continue working, or not paying travel time. Please understand that it is illegal for an employer to misclassify a worker to avoid paying them benefits, including overtime.
