Employment News – 10/18/2016

The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) requires that employees be paid one and one-half times their regular rate of pay for all hours worked over forty hours in a workweek. California’s Labor Code additionally requires overtime for all hours worked over eight hours in a day and on the seventh day worked in a workweek. To calculate an overtime rate, an employer must know what to include in an employee’s regular rate of pay.
