Overtime Violation Experience & Commitment That Yields Results

Northridge Overtime Violation Attorneys

We Defend Employee Rights in & around the San Fernando Valley

Overtime disputes between employers and employees are among the most common of all those pertaining to employment law. However, the rules and regulations regarding overtime are covered under both state and federal laws which set forth how overtime is to be calculated, as well as which employees who are eligible for overtime pay.

When an employer denies proper overtime pay, it is a form of wage theft. If you believe your legal rights have been violated in regards to overtime, it is important to seek the legal assistance of a trusted employment law attorney. Based in Northridge and serving clients throughout the San Fernando Valley, K2 Employment Law represents employees in such matters. We are thoroughly versed in the state and federal laws and precedents that apply to your case, and we offer strong legal representation for resolving the matter—whether through an administrative hearing or in court.

State & Federal Laws Regarding Overtime

The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) is the federal law that regulates overtime hours and pay. California overtime law also regulates this matter.

In general, you must be paid time and a half in the following situations:

  • Working beyond 8 hours in a day
  • Working more than 40 hours per week
  • Working on the 7th consecutive day of a week

You must be paid double time for the following:

  • Working more than 12 hours in one day
  • Working more than 8 hours on the 7th consecutive day of a week

Several categories of employees are exempt from these laws, meaning that the laws do not apply to them. Exempt employees include executives, administrators, managers, outside sales people, and workers in specific industries, such as actors, taxi drivers, airline employees, ambulance drivers, agricultural workers, personal attendants, camp counselors, and more. Contractors/contracted workers may also be exempted from overtime.

Disputes may revolve around whether you are exempt under the law or the actual number of hours worked in a given day or week. A Northridge overtime violation lawyer at K2 Employment Law can review all of the details regarding your case to determine if your overtime rights have been violated.
