Overtime & Doubletime Wages

Under California law, you are entitled to 1 and ½ times your regular hourly wage rate for every hour after the 8th hour you work in the same day. This is overtime pay. You are also entitled to overtime pay for work beyond 40 hours in the same week under federal law. However, you are entitled to two times your regular hourly wage rate for every hour after the 12th hour you work in the same day. This is doubletime pay. Overtime is due after 8 hours per day or 40 hours per week unless an alternative workweek of no more than 4 days of 10 hours was established. Premium pay on 7th day not required for employee whose total weekly work hours do not exceed 30 and whose total hours in any one work day thereof do not exceed 6, in specific wage and hour orders.

Certain employees may not benefit from the overtime laws. For instance, certain truck drivers who driver between states are exempt because of the nature of their work. This is referred to as the Motor Carrier Exception.
