California—the Golden State has a style all its own. That is certainly true when it comes to calculating overtime. One of only four states that require daily overtime. It also requires employees to be paid double time on a daily and weekly basis. With arguably the greatest number of requirements to pay overtime on the books of any state, processing payroll and keeping in compliance with California overtime rules can be a complex situation.
In addition to laws that are strictly Californian, the Federal wage and hour laws may also apply. For example California does not have its own definition of “regular rate of pay” or “workweek” but follows the federal. So the person processing payroll in the state must understand not only California’s overtime requirements but the federal as well.
Join Vicki Lambert in this exhaustive 100-minute training session to understand the requirements for calculating overtime and double time in California to ensure compliance with the state’s wage and hour laws. Also get clarity on terms used in wage and hour law regarding paying overtime such as “regular rate of pay”, “workweek” “fluctuating workweek” and “alternative workweek”. Vicki will also explain the calculations needed when an employee is paid different rates of pay within the same workweek and eligible for overtime pay. Additionally, you’ll understand the requirements for compensatory time off as opposed to make-up time, and be able to differentiate between the two under California law. Lastly, Vicki will show where California follows the federal standards and where it differs, and how to determine which has priority.
