Any employer must become familiar with the employee rights and your obligations as a business owner within your state. These guidelines are essential to protecting the rights of your employees and are strongly enforced.

Exempt vs Non-Exempt

Overtime pay must be offered to all employees, except those who are classified as “exempt.” 

Violations and Penalties

California’s courts have been known to favor the side of the employee. When employers violate overtime laws they can be met with fines as well as full back-pay for the overtime and waiting time.
