Eligibility for Overtime Pay in California
In California, eligibility for overtime pay is determined by specific work-hour criteria:
- More Than 8 Hours in a Day: Typically, employees become eligible for overtime pay when they work more than eight hours in a single day.
- Over 40 Hours in a Week: Employees are usually eligible for overtime if they work over 40 hours within a workweek.
- First Eight Hours on the Seventh Consecutive Day: When employees work seven consecutive days, the first eight hours on the seventh day qualify for overtime.
- Over 12 Hours in a Day: Hours worked beyond 12 in a single day entitle employees to double-time pay.
However, exemptions apply to certain categories, such as salaried workers, specific job classifications, and particular industries. Understanding these nuances is crucial to ensuring compliance with California's overtime regulations. If you have questions or concerns about overtime pay, our experienced team can provide guidance.
Recovering Unpaid Overtime in California: Timeframe Explained
In California, the statute of limitations is a vital factor that dictates the window of opportunity for pursuing unpaid overtime wages. Typically, you have a three-year period from the date when the unpaid wages were originally owed to initiate a claim.
However, there's a potential extension to this period if you can substantiate that your employer's failure to pay overtime was intentional or "willful." Under these circumstances, you may be eligible to extend the timeframe for up to four years.
