Re: Ten Hour Shifts and Overtime Pay
Hours worked in excess of 8 in a day or 40 in a wk. & the 1st 8 hrs. worked on the 7th day of work must be paid at the rate of not less than 1 1/2 times the regular rate of pay. Hours worked in excess of 12 in one day as well as hrs. worked in excess of 8 on any 7th day of a workweek must be compensated at the rate of not less than twice the regular rate of pay. (This info would not apply when working an alternative workweek.)
(Once an hr. has been counted as a daily OT hr., it is not eligible toward weekly OT.)
P.S. Info above re overtime pay would not apply to an exempt employee. If you are a non-exempt employee, you should be getting paid overtime for the hrs. you work over 8 in a day.
Ca. OT laws.
Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.
