Bay Area Unpaid Wages Lawyers
Do you work overtime? You should be compensated for it. At times, employers wrongly believe that if you are paid a salary, you are barred from receiving overtime pay. This is not necessarily true, in California. In reality, this is a major error among employers and employees.
As stated in the California Labor Law, “…all hours worked over eight hours in any workday and over 40 hours in the workweek” non-exempt employees are entitled to overtime pay. In other words, overtime wage is warranted if an individual shift exceeds 8 hours, and even if less than 40 hours are worked during the week. Please be aware, “comp time” is not recognized as compensation for overtime.
