A Summary Of Wage And Hour Law
Under state law, California workers are entitled to a minimum wage of $11 per hour for employers with 25 or fewer employees and $12 per hour for larger employers. Any work in excess of eight hours in a single day or 40 hours per week counts as overtime and entitles the worker to time-and-a-half their regular hourly wage for the excess time. A worker who works more than 12 hours in a day is entitled to double wages for hours worked beyond the 12th hour.
Unfortunately, many employers fail to pay their workers as legally required. Shortchanging employees for their hard work exploits their labor and puts an unfair financial burden on them. The Law Office of Michael A. Conger stands up for workers in wage and hour disputes.
