What are Your Wage and Hour Rights Under Federal and State Laws?

Recent changes to wage and hour laws can make understanding your employee rights difficult. Important information to be aware of is as follows:

Minimum Wage

The minimum wage in California is dependent on the size of the employer. For example:

  • If an employer has 1-25 employees, the minimum wage is $13.00
  • If an employer has 26 or more employees, the minimum wage is $14.00
  • California aims to increase the minimum wage to $15.00 for all employees by 2023
  • Particular Cities and Counties may have their own minimum wages requirements

Minimum Wage for Tipped Employees

All employees in California are entitled to minimum wage regardless of additional tipped income.

Overtime and Double Time

Overtime and/or Double Time eligibility occurs when:

  • A non-exempt employee works more than 8 hours in a day or more than 40 hours a week
  • If an employee works more than 12 hours in a day, they are entitled to double time
  • If an employee works 7 days in a row, they are entitled to time and a half for the first 8 hours, then double time for any additional hours worked

Notably, not every worker is eligible for overtime and/or double-time pay, as some positions are exempt from these requirements. You should consult with an attorney to help you understand your specific situation.

What Are Common Violations of the Wage and Hour Laws?

Wage and hour violations are more common than many employees realize. Some employers take advantage of the complexities in labor laws to withhold overtime pay or commit other intentional violations. Others may not even be aware that they are operating in violation of the laws.

The most common violations of wage and hour laws in California are:

  • Misclassification of employees as independent contractors
  • Misclassification of employees as exempt from overtime
  • Failure to provide proper uninterrupted meal breaks and/or rest breaks
  • Failure to pay wages for all hours worked
  • Failure to pay the minimum wage
  • Failure to pay overtime and/or double-time wages
  • Failure to pay sales commissions
  • Failure to provide proper itemized wages statements

If you feel your employer has misclassified your employment status or has failed to properly pay you the wages you are owed, call Mancini & Associates to discuss your options.
