General Rules Governing Overtime In California
In general, workers in California are entitled to time-and-a-half for all hours worked in excess of eight hours, up to and including 12 hours on any given workday, and for the first eight hours worked on the seventh consecutive day of a workweek.
Workers are entitled to twice their regular hourly rate, or double time, for all hours worked in excess of 12 hours in a workday and for all hours worked in excess of eight hours on the seventh consecutive day of a workweek.
Overtime Pay Examples
A clerk whose regular hourly rate is $15 per hour: If this clerk puts in a 10-hour workday, he or she would be paid $15 per hour for the first eight hours, then time-and-a-half, or $22.50 per hour, for the last two hours of the shift.
A technician whose regular hourly rate is $20 per hour: If this technician works for seven days in a row, his or her pay would be set at time-and-half, or $30 per hour, for all hours worked on the seventh day.
A sales representative whose regular hourly rate is $12 per hour: If this sales representative worked 13 hours in a day, he or she would be paid $12 per hour for the first eight hours, time-and-a-half, or $18 per hour for the next four hours, and double time, or $24 per hour for the final hour of the shift.
