Attorneys For Wage And Hour Violations
The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) is a federal law that guarantees a minimum wage and very specific overtime rules for both private and government employers. This federal legislation establishes that employees must be paid time-and-a-half for all hours worked in excess of 40 hours per week. Meanwhile, California wage and hour laws are governed by the California Labor Code and State Wage Orders Guidelines. These state laws operate under a slightly different standard. In addition to the already established federal guidelines, California demands that all nonexempt employees be paid time-and-a-half for any time worked in excess of eight hours per day.
