IF YOU HAVE EVER WORKED OVER 8 HOURS IN A DAY OR OVER 40 HOURS IN A WEEK WITHOUT BEING PAID AT ONE AND A HALF TIMES YOUR REGULAR PAY RATE FOR THOSE OVERTIME HOURS, PLEASE CALL THE LAW OFFICE OF SETH E. TILLMON TO DISCUSS WHETHER YOU ARE OWED UNPAID OVERTIME WAGES.
California law assumes that all employees are entitled to be paid at one and one half times their regular rate of pay (sometimes referred to as "overtime wages", "overtime pay", or simply "OT") for all hours in excess of 8 in a day or 40 in a week.
California law also assumes that all employees are entitled to be paid at two times their regular rate of pay (sometimes referred to as "double-time wages", "double-time pay", or simply "golden time") for all hours worked in excess of 12 in a day.
Many salaried employees are also entitled to overtime pay when they work over eight hours in a day or over forty hours in a week. Whether a salaried employee is entitled to an overtime wage rate for overtime hours worked is a legal question which depends on many factors, not just whether an employee is paid on salary or how high that salary may be. If an employee earns a salary of $10,000,000.00 per year, he or she is still entitled to overtime if the same employee made only $50,000.00 per year. This is because the primary determinant of overtime wage rights is the type of duties performed by an employee and the amount of time such employee spends on certain work duties vs. the amount of time such employee spends on other types of work duties.
California law also assumes that all employees are entitled to a duty-free 30-minute meal period before the beginning of their sixth hour of work each day, and that all employees are entitled to a second duty-free 30-minute meal period before the beginning of their eleventh hour of work on each day any such employee works more than ten hours.
California law also assumes that all employees are entitled to a duty-free 10-minute rest period on each day that they work at least 3.5 hours, and that all employees are entitled to a second duty-free 10-minute rest period on each day that any such employee works more than six hours.
If you have not been paid overtime wages, or even double-time wages, or you have been denied meal and/or rest periods in accordance with California law, you may be entitled to recover your unpaid wages as well as penalties for your meal and/or rest period violations.
