California Wage and Hour Law
Instructor: Vicki M. Lambert
Product ID: 500394

It has been said that California has a style all its own. This is especially true in the area of employment law. With arguably the greatest amount of wage and hour laws on the books of any state, processing payroll and keeping in compliance with California requirements can be a complex situation. Issues involving daily and weekly overtime and double time, split shifts, call-backs, meals and rest periods, donning and doffing, travel time, local minimum wage and countless other potential snares and pitfalls await the unwary employer! And what about wage orders verses labor law, which one takes priority? And which of the 17 wage orders am I under in the first place? All these questions must be answered correctly to ensure compliance.

But even California can sometimes follow the federal rules. This is especially true when it comes to the actual math needed to calculating overtime including the definition of regular rate of pay, workweek and workday. California is however, a sovereign state so it also has its own requirements for areas of wage and hour law that the federal does not address including paycheck stub requirements and posting regulations. And don't forget the Anti-theft wage law passed recently in the state. So the payroll professional processing payroll in California must be familiar with both the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and the California Labor law and know when which one takes priority. With all these different factors to contend with when processing California payrolls the department must be very diligent for if it fails to comply or commits the tiniest infraction, serious penalties can and do occur.
