Overtime Lawyers in Burbank

Getting You the Pay You Deserve

Sometimes I work over 8 hours a day or 40 hours a week; how much overtime am I entitled to receive?
Overtime is based on your regular rate of pay, which is the compensation you normally earn for the work you perform. Ordinarily, the hours to be used in computing the regular rate of pay may not exceed the legal maximum regular hours which, in most cases, is eight hours per workday, 40 hours per workweek. That being said, overtime is earned as follows: One and one-half times (1½) your regular rate of pay for all hours worked in excess of eight hours up to and including 12 hours in any workday, and for the first eight hours worked on the seventh consecutive day of work in a workweek; and double your regular rate of pay for all hours worked in excess of 12 hours in any workday and for all hours worked in excess of eight on the seventh consecutive day of work in a workweek. If you are paid on an hourly basis, then that amount is your regular rate of pay.

What if I worked overtime without my boss’s permission or authorization? Do I still get paid?
Yes. California law requires that employers pay overtime, whether authorized or not. However, most employers require prior authorization before working overtime and you may be subjected to discipline if you work unauthorized overtime.

What if my employer retaliates against me if I question him about not being paid my overtime?
If your employer retaliates against you by terminating or demoting you because you questioned them about not being paid overtime or because you filed or threatened to file a claim with the Labor Commissioner, then they may have violated the law. Every situation is different, so schedule a complimentary case evaluation with our overtime attorneys in Burbank to discuss your case.
