Are You Entitled to Overtime Pay?

All California employees are entitled to overtime pay when working more than 8 hours in a day OR 40 hours in a week unless it is determined they are exempt from overtime pay under one of the available exemptions. Here are some of them:

* Administrative Exemption

* Executive Exemption

* Professional Exemption

* Outside Sales Exemption

* Computer Professional Exemption

* Caregiver Exemption

 

It is important for our attorneys to determine whether or not you are entitled to overtime pay. Remember, it has little to do with the title your company gave your or whether they classify you as exempt and pay you a salary. Contact us to find out!

MEAL BREAKS

In California, you are entitled to a 30 minute, uninterrupted meal break, by the start of the 5th hour. If your employer fails to provide this meal break, you are entitled to an additional hour of pay.

 

BREAKS

You are entitled to (2) 10 minute breaks each is to begin after 3.5 hours of work. If your employer fails to provide these 10 minute breaks, you are entitled to an additional hour of pay.

 

EXPENSE REIMBURSMENT

You are entitled to be reimbursed for all expenses you incur in the discharge of your duties. This means if you had to drive your car for work related tasks, you are entitled to not only be paid you rate of pay to do so, but also for each mile you drive. The IRS rate (currently 55 cents per miles as of this writing) is the standard most often used.

Also, other expenses related to work may also be reimbursed, such as:

  • Office supplies, including laptops and computers
  • Cell phone
  • Home office space

 

COMMISSIONS AND BONUSES

Many employees do not realize that if they are paid by the hour (are non exempt and entitled to overtime pay) and they are paid non discretionary bonuses or commissions, the base rate of pay should be increased when computing the overtime pay.
