Wage & Hour Laws in California

California law covers many aspects of wages and hours. Violations of the law can result in various disputes.

Examples of wage and/or hour disputes, can be based on:

  • The employer’s requirement to pay the state’s mandated minimum wage
  • Tipped employee issues, such as tip “pooling” and withholding tips
  • The employer’s requirement to pay appropriate overtime
  • An employer asking an employee to work “off the clock”
  • The employer’s requirement to provide rest breaks and/or meal breaks
  • The employer’s misclassification of employees as independent contractors (who are exempt from wage/hour laws)
  • Other types of misclassification of employees that deny them rights under wage/hour laws

California’s wage and hour laws apply to all employees except independent contractors and employees considered exempt under the law, such as executives, administrators, physicians, surgeons, and others.

Per California’s Labor Code, you must be paid no later than the 26th of the month for all wages earned between the first of the month until the 15th of the month. You must also be paid by the 10th of the following month for wages earned between the 16th and the month’s end. Other rules apply for the payment of overtime. California law also covers specific rules for paying employees who are terminated, laid off, or who quit after providing notice.
