Eastvale, California

Eastvale is a city located in Riverside County.  Eastvale is home to more than 70,000 residents.  It covers approximately thirteen square miles, and encompasses the following zip codes: 91752 and 92880. Eastvale’s history is intricately intertwined with that of its neighboring cities, including Corona, Norco, Chino, and Ontario. For well over a century and a half, the land in Eastvale was primarily utilized for farming and the dairy industry. In 1834, the Mexican government took control of the land from Native Americans and Spaniards, as well as Spain’s missions. To foster colonization, agriculture, and livestock raising in the region, the government granted land to influential and affluent Mexican politicians. After California’s statehood in 1850, the land in Riverside County was initially divided between San Bernardino and San Diego Counties, a situation that persisted until 1893 when Riverside County was formally established. The name “East Vale” likely emerged during this period, as it appeared in the minutes of one of the early meetings of the Riverside County Board of Commissioners, designating it as one of 53 school districts. During the 1950s, Los Angeles’ burgeoning population extended into the surrounding farmlands, leading dairy farmers to relocate their operations to the valley. Many of these dairies in Eastvale, the Chino Valley, and Ontario were owned and operated by Dutch and Portuguese families. As local schoolchildren progressed beyond the elementary level, they had to cross the river into Corona to attend higher grades. In the spring of 2007, responding to the wishes of Eastvale residents, a group of five individuals formed the Eastvale Incorporation Committee to explore the possibility of cityhood. After the initial election, two of the committee members, Jeff DeGrandpre and Kelly Howell, represented the community on the City Council. Together with three other council members, Adam Rush, Ric Welch, and Ike Bootsma, they guided Eastvale into the next chapter of its vibrant history. Today, Eastvale maintains ties to Corona and Norco as a member of the Corona-Norco Unified School District and shares a zip code with the City of Corona (92880) and the City of Jurupa Valley (91752). Before its incorporation, Eastvale was considered a community within an unincorporated area of Western Riverside County. Many residents mistakenly believed they were part of the City of Corona due to their shared zip code. However, Eastvale is now an independent city, charting its own path for the future. With a bustling city hall, dedicated staff, and engaged developers, the prospects for Eastvale’s future are bright and promising.

Navigating Overtime: Unraveling the Differences Between Federal and California Overtime Laws

Overtime regulations play a crucial role in safeguarding the rights of employees and ensuring fair compensation for their hard work. However, the intricacies of overtime laws can vary between federal and state jurisdictions. In this blog, we'll explore a few notable differences between federal overtime law and California overtime law, shedding light on the unique provisions that shape the employment landscape in the Golden State. Overtime Thresholds Federal Overtime Law: Under federal law, the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) sets the overtime threshold at 40 hours worked in a workweek. Employees covered by the FLSA must be paid one and a half times their regular hourly rate for each hour worked beyond the standard 40 hours. California Overtime Law: In California, the overtime rules are even more protective of employees. The state mandates overtime pay for hours worked beyond eight in a workday, as well as for the first eight hours worked on the seventh consecutive day of work in a workweek. Daily Overtime vs. Weekly Overtime Federal Overtime Law: The FLSA focuses primarily on weekly overtime, with the threshold set at 40 hours in a workweek. There is no provision for daily overtime under federal law. California Overtime Law: California goes a step further by requiring daily overtime pay for hours worked beyond eight in a single workday. This means that even if an employee works less than 40 hours in a workweek, they may still be eligible for overtime pay if they exceed eight hours in a day. Remedies Remedies also vary under federal and state law. Under federal law, for example, where a "willful" violation is established, the employer failing to pay overtime compensation may be liable for a period of three years (extended from two years) before the filing of the complaint and for liquidated damages of up to double the amount due. No such liquidated damages provision exists under California law, although waiting time penalties for delayed payment do exist. Why to Seek Legal Help Regarding Overtime Laws Seeking legal help regarding overtime laws in California is important for several reasons. Firstly, overtime laws in California are complex. They require employers to pay overtime, whether authorized or not. Understanding these laws can be challenging without professional guidance. Secondly, it's crucial to note that under both California and federal laws, overtime pay is not a privilege granted to some workers, but a right. If an employer is withholding wages, it's vital to seek legal advice. Thirdly, some employers may illegally punish employees for seeking the overtime pay they are entitled to. Legal advice can provide the necessary protection against such actions. Many employees in the state are unaware of their rights to seek overtime wages, and some employers may take advantage of this lack of knowledge. Having legal help can ensure you're well-informed about your rights and can assist in recovering financial compensation if you've been unjustly denied overtime pay. Lastly, experienced legal professionals can guide you through the process of collecting back pay if you ... Read more
