Overtime Pay for Hourly Employees

The California Labor Code generally mandates that all hourly wage employees be compensated at the rate of 1 ½ times the regular rate of compensation (hereafter, “overtime”) for all hours of work performed in excess of 8 hours in one workday or in excess of 40 hours in one workweek.

Additionally, the law generally requires that all hourly wage employees be compensated at double their regular rate of compensation (hereafter, “double-time”) for all hours worked in excess of 12 hours in any workday and for all hours worked in excess of 8 hours on the seventh consecutive day of work in a workweek.
