        Protected Under California Statutes and Laws

        Overtime compensation is something that is protected under the California statutes and laws. When you are working hours that are more than your set schedule, you should be receiving time and a half. When you start working overtime hours without receiving overtime compensation you absolutely need to investigate why this is happening. We will be able to walk through your case with you and let you know if you have a claim and how we are going to get you justice.

        Am I Eligible for a Claim?

        If you look at your paycheck and you notice that the money you expect to see is not there and it should be because you worked overtime, then you can most likely bet that you have a claim.

        Overtime compensation claims are essentially when we can show that the employer owed you overtime for the hours that you worked but you never received it.

        Overtime for Independent Contractors

        Unfortunately, if you are categorized as an independent contractor, then you are not entitled to overtime pay. If your employer, however, has either mistakenly or purposefully missed categorized you as an independent contractor then you might be entitled to a claim. Being misclassified is a common way that people miss out on their overtime pay. You are protected by the law if you’ve been misclassified as an independent contractor when you are supposed to be a non-exempt employee of the company. Non-exempt employees are entitled to overtime pay.

        Exemptions for Overtime Compensation

        There are employees within companies that may not be eligible for overtime compensation. That can happen for a variety of reasons but typically it would be something called a white-collar exemption. People who do executive, administrative or professional work with a company and receive a salary of over $640 a week likely are not eligible to receive overtime compensation.

        Here is a more comprehensive list of people who might not be eligible to receive overtime compensation. The list includes:

        • Executive managers whose duties are more than half of the time spent managing their employees and they have authority to hire or fire people on their staff
        • Office workers who are administrative workers that do work related to operations or management of the business
        • Employees who needed specialty experience and education or licenses or certifications from the state of California to work at the business
        • Specialty employees who work with high-tech equipment
        • Some sales workers

        If you are not sure if you fall under these types of categories where you would not be eligible for overtime compensation, we urge you to get in contact with our office as soon as you possibly can. The sooner you know whether or not you have a case, the better off you will be.

        Types of Cases

        The following are the categories of statutes and laws and regulations that address overtime compensation claims. Our Orange County overtime compensation attorney is well-versed in the following:

        • Fair Labor Standards
        • California Labor Code
        • Unpaid Overtime
        • Working Off the Clock
        • Regular Rate of Pay
        • Mandatory Overtime
        • Labor Board vs Attorney
        • Exempt vs Nonexempt
        • California Salary Laws

        If you have a case regarding missing overtime, the FSLA (Fair Labor Standards Act) can allow you to receive your damages doubled when your employer violates the laws of overtime. According to the California labor code, overtime is if you have worked over eight-hour days amassing more than 40 hours per week. When your employer does not give you the overtime that you are earning, they are violating the laws in California and they can get in a lot of trouble. When your employer asks you to do tasks off the clock that are in excess of the hours that you work full-time, then that can be in violation of the California labor laws and the FLSA regarding overtime compensation. If an employer, for instance, pays you for the overtime hours that you worked but does not give you the legally required time and a half hourly pay, that is in violation of the California labor laws and you might have a claim. It’s frequent for an employer to either accidentally or purposefully only pay you your hourly wage for overtime. You can be asked by your employer to perform overtime that is mandatory. You have to be paid the overtime rate, however, if you were going to be performing this task. They cannot forgo your compensation and they cannot just pay you your hourly wage. It has to be time and a half.

        When you have an Orange County overtime compensation attorney by your side, you are greatly increasing the chance that the compensation you receive is full and fair. We can go over the details of your claim and give you advice on what legal options you should be looking at. We can determine whether or not you are exempt from overtime conversation. Don’t assume that just because you are salaried you are not eligible for overtime compensation. Not every salaried employee is going to be exempt from overtime. Let us help you figure out whether or not you have a claim.
