When must overtime be paid?

If you are a California worker, your overtime wages must be paid at the same time as your regular wages. In most cases, this is at least twice during each calendar month. The California Department of Industrial Relations says that many employers choose to pay their workers semi-monthly. If this is the payment schedule your employer chooses, the wages for work you perform between the first and 15th day of a month must be paid by the 26th of that month. Wages for work you perform between the 15th and ending day of a month must be paid by the 10th of the following month.

Gender discrimination in the workplace

Working women in California will find themselves running into the gender wage gap time and time again, even in the year 2017. It's an unfortunate truth that gender discrimination still exists even in the modern workplace, and it can have a severe impact on all women working in it.

Understanding affirmative action in the workplace

When people think about affirmative action, they may realize they do not know much about it. Because this policy is designed to help prevent discrimination in the workplace, it can be helpful for California residents to understand how it can affect their workplace.

What is a waiting time penalty?

When you leave your job in California, it is with the understanding that you will receive compensation for the last hours you put in. There may be times, though, when you do not receive your full wages for these hours. In these cases, your company may be subject to a waiting time penalty.
