Failure to pay overtime wages

Under California law, employers must pay one and a half times an employee’s “regular rate” if he or she works more than 40 hours per week or more than 8 hours per day; and double the “regular rate” for work in excess for 12 hours per day. The employer must compensate nonexempt employee for “off the clock” (before punching in or after punching out on a time clock) if the employers knew or should have known that the employees were working those hours. The issue is whether the employee was permitted by the employer to work. It is irrelevant whether it was necessary for the employee to work the overtime hours or whether another employee could have performed the tasks in less time.
