California Employers Must Follow Wage And Hour Laws
The law regarding overtime is simple: a nonexempt employee must be paid time and a half for all hours worked over eight hours in any workday and over 40 hours in a workweek.
Some companies routinely violate wage and hour laws, by making nonexempt employees work through lunch breaks, take unpaid rest breaks, or open or close the business on unpaid time. Others classify certain workers as managerial and therefore treat them as “exempt” from wage and hour laws, even when these employees are not really managers.
If you and your co-workers have been made to work off the clock or if you have been mistakenly classified as an exempt employee, you may be entitled to compensation for your unpaid overtime and benefits.
