Working long hours with no overtime pay? It’s illegal and Kurtzhall Law will put an end to your employer’s wage theft.
In California, a nonexempt employee shall not be employed more than eight hours in any workday or more than 40 hours in any workweek unless he or she receives one and one-half times his or her regular rate of pay for all hours worked over eight hours in any workday and over 40 hours in the workweek.
Eight hours of labor constitutes a day's work, and employment beyond eight hours in any workday or more than six days in any workweek requires the employee to be compensated for the overtime at not less than one and one-half times the employee's regular rate of pay for all hours worked in excess of eight hours up to and including 12 hours in any workday, and for the first eight hours worked on the seventh consecutive day of work in a workweek; and double the employee's regular rate of pay for all hours worked in excess of 12 hours in any workday and for all hours worked in excess of eight on the seventh consecutive day of work in a workweek.
Even if you work unauthorized overtime, your employer is obligated to pay for it and you can never waive your right to overtime pay. If your employer retaliates or discriminates against you because you said you are going to file a wage claim for unpaid overtime, or in any manner whatsoever, call Kurtzhall Law to get the justice you deserve and put your earned wages back in your pocket.
