Knowledgeable Wage and Overtime Attorneys for Encinitas, CA

In California, the law states that employees must be paid properly. Legislation such as the Fair Labor Standards Act specify certain requirements regarding employment and compensation matters: Encinitas Wage and Hour Lawyers | Ceartas Legal

Any employees who are not exempt are to be paid for every hour they work. If overtime is worked, it is 1.5 times the regular wage. Any hours over 8 in one day are to be paid as overtime.

If an employee works more than six days consecutively, the seventh day starts at overtime pay. During this seventh day, any hours beyond eight will be paid at twice the regular rate. Anytime an employee works beyond 12 hours in one day, these hours are paid at double the normal rate.

The above regulations are not applicable to workers who normally have a four-day, 40-hour workweek. Employees with this type of schedule will only qualify to earn overtime when they work over 40 hours total in one week.

When overtime or double time has been earned, it is to be paid along with the normal wages on the regular pay date. If your employer fails to comply with this law, contact the Encinitas pay dispute attorneys and overtime dispute attorneys of Ceartas Legal.

Any time a worker is let go, they are to be given the value of all unused vacation days, sick days, and wages immediately. In cases where the worker quits without giving adequate notice to process the final paycheck, the employer is allowed three days to calculate and provide it.

If an employer fails to comply with these legal obligations, they may be subject to fines and various other consequences. Such monetary penalties increase each day for as many as 30 days.

The Encinitas wage and hour lawyers at our office are dedicated to preserving employee rights. If you need effective legal guidance and representation, call our firm.
