Overtime Compensation

California’s wage and hour regulations are far more protective of employees compared to federal law. The most expensive wage and hour claims facing Employers is unpaid overtime compensation. Overtime at time-and-a-half is due to employees who work more than eight hours a day or over 40 hours a week, whichever is greater.

Overtime can also include double time. The largest exposure is the misclassification of salaried employees. Our firm has obtained over $130,000,000.00 in unpaid overtime compensation when representing California employees. We strongly recommend a review of an Employer’s classification of exempt employees.
