Defining Overtime Pay And Double Time Pay
California law requires employers to pay overtime or double time for certain amounts of work.
- Overtime is 1.5 times an employee’s standard hourly rate for any hours worked over 8 hours a day or 40 hours a week.
- Double time — or, twice the standard hourly rate — is required for any time worked beyond 12 hours a day, or for time worked on the eighth day following seven consecutive days of work.
So, if you have a work day over 8 hours or a work week over 40 hours, you deserve overtime pay. If you work over 12 hours a day or more than seven consecutive days, you deserve double time pay. Failure to pay overtime or double time can apply to salaried, as well as hourly, employees.
Hold Your Employer Accountable: Seek Compensation
Far too many employers take advantage of employees by making them work overtime, but failing to compensate them. You deserve to hold your employer accountable. Taking legal action will not only penalize them for their violations of wage and hour laws, but also set an example for other California employers. Moon Law Group, PC, can help you file a claim against your employer to hold them responsible and help you recover compensation for your damages.
