In California, all nonexempt employees are entitled to receive a minimum wage, overtime pay, and rest periods. The attorneys of Bracamontes & Vlasak, P.C., can help if your employer is in violation of California law.
The minimum wage in California is currently $8 per hour. Some cities require employers who do business within city limits to pay a higher minimum wage. For example, the minimum wage in San Francisco is currently $9.92 per hour.
Employers are required by California Labor Code § 510 to pay their nonexempt employees for each hour of overtime.
Nonexempt employees are entitled to compensation at the rate of 1½ times the regular rate of pay (“time-and-a-half”) for hours worked in excess of 8 hours per day and/or 40 hours per week, whichever is greater. Additionally, nonexempt employees are entitled to time-and-a-half for the first 8 hours worked on the 7th consecutive day of any work week.
Nonexempt employees are also entitled to compensation at the rate of twice the regular rate of pay (“double time”) after working 12 hours in any single workday and after working 8 hours on the 7th consecutive day of any work week.

Employers are required by California Industrial Welfare Commission Wage Orders to provide nonexempt employees with a 10-minute rest period for every 4 hours worked. Further, employers are required to provide nonexempt employees with a 30-minute (unpaid) meal period for every five hours worked and two 30-minute (unpaid) meal periods for every 10 hours worked.
If an employer fails to provide a mandatory meal period, California Labor Code § 226.7 requires that the employer pay the employee one additional hour of pay.
