The California Overtime Law
The state of California's overtime laws involve overlapping statutes, regulations, and precedents
that govern the compensation of employees in California. While the governing federal law is the
Fair Labor Standards Act (29 USC 201-219), California overtime law is codified in provisions of
the California Labor Code and in Wage orders of the Industrial Welfare Commission Because
there are two sources of applicable law (federal and state), a California employer must comply
In California, based on California Labor Code 1171, only an employment relationship is required
for overtime rules to apply. Under the California Industrial Welfare Commission Wage Orders,
an "employer" is "any person ... who directly or indirectly, or through an agent or any other
person, employs or exercises control over wages, hours, or working conditions of any person."
Under the California Labor Code, an "employee" is "[any] person, including aliens and minors,
rendering actual service in any business for an employer, whether gratuitously or for wages or
pay, whether the wages or pay are measured by the standard of time, piece, task, commission, or
other method of calculation, and whether the service is rendered on a commission,
concessionaire, or other basis." Independent contractors are not employees covered by overtime
laws, so it is important to determine if a worker is an independent contractor or an employee.
California overtime laws differ from federal overtime laws in many respects. Foremost, pursuant
to California Labor Code Section 510, non-exempt employees must be compensated at one and a
half times the regular rate of pay for all hours worked in excess of eight hours in a workday, 40
hours in a workweek and the first eight hours of a seventh consecutive workday. Employees in
California are entitled to double-time for working more than twelve hour workdays or more than
eight hours on the seventh consecutive workday of a single workweek. Under federal law there
are only 40 hour weekly overtime limits. This eight hour overtime limit in California frequently
gives rise to wage-and-hour litigation for violations of state, but not federal, labor laws.
For example, "comp time" schemes, where employers tell employees that since they worked 10
hours on Monday they can work 6 hours on Tuesday, are illegal because even though the
employees are not working more than 40 hours for the purposes of overtime compensation under
federal law, they are working more than 8 hours for purposes of California overtime law and
rounding the 6 and 10 hour workdays to two 8 hour workdays would cheat the employee out of
two hours of overtime pay.
Perhaps the biggest difference between California and federal overtime law relates to the
administrative exemption's "primarily engaged" in duties that meet the test for the exemption
requirement, such as duties that involve exercising independent discretion and judgment as set
forth in the controversial Order No. 4. Whereas under the Fair Labor Standards Act "primarily
engaged" does not necessarily mean at least half, under California wage-and-hour laws, less than
half of exempt duties automatically eliminates the overtime exemption.
