🔴 PAID OVERTIME WAGES? WHY THE HELL NOT? I Can Help. (Sacramento)

license info: California State Bar License Number 246240
THE FACT THAT YOU ARE PAID ON A SALARY BASIS OR ACCORDING TO A COMMISSION STRUCTURE DOES NOT MEAN THAT YOU ARE NOT ENTITLED TO OVERTIME PAY FOR ALL OVERTIME HOURS YOU WORK. NOR DOES THE FACT THAT YOU HAVE A MANAGEMENT-TYPE JOB TITLE, OR ANY OTHER SORT OF JOB TITLE.

California law assumes that all employees are entitled to be paid at 1 ½ times their regular rate of pay (sometimes referred to as "overtime wages", "overtime pay", or simply "OT") for all time worked over 8 hours in a day or over 40 hours in a week.

California law also assumes that all employees are entitled to be paid at 2 times their regular rate of pay (sometimes referred to as "double-time wages", "double-time pay", or simply "golden time") for all time worked over 12 hours in a day.

California law also assumes that all employees are entitled to a duty-free 30-minute meal period before the beginning of their sixth hour of work each day, and that all employees are entitled to a second duty-free 30-minute meal period before the beginning of their eleventh hour of work on each day any such employee works more than ten hours.

California law also assumes that all employees are entitled to a duty-free 10-minute rest period on each day that they work at least 3.5 hours, and that all employees are entitled to a second duty-free 10-minute rest period on each day that any such employee works more than six hours.

Please do not fall for the common myth that salaried employees are not entitled to additional overtime pay beyond their normal salary when they work more than 8 hours in a day or more than 40 hours in a week. Salary is never the sole basis for determining whether overtime wages must be paid.

If you have not been paid overtime wages or double-time wages, or you have been denied meal and/or rest periods in accordance with California law, you may be entitled to recover your unpaid wages as well as penalties for your meal and rest period violations.

Often employers are more than happy to give employees special titles because they know employees generally don't have a full understanding of the overtime laws and are likely to believe that a particular job title determines eligibility for overtime pay.

If you have not received overtime pay at a current or past job, you may be entitled to recover all of the wages that were unlawfully withheld, plus penalties.

You never know...what you may think of as "no big deal," may actually be a big deal in the eyes of the law and entitle you to significant compensation.

California law is distinctly pro-employee and provides great incentives to those seeking to enforce their employment rights.
