Overtime: You are entitled to overtime in most cases

You knew you were staying late for work a lot, but when you got your paycheck, it didn't reflect much of a difference from your usual payment. You thought that maybe the overtime would be on the next paycheck and that you were confused on the dates. Instead, your next paycheck came with no difference.

Is your employer failing to pay you mandated overtime wages?

For many employees in California, overtime work, especially if it is regular, can be a major source of income. One hour of overtime each week day at time and a half pay is almost the same as working a full extra shift. The more overtime you routinely work, the more lucrative your employment can become. Unless you are a salaried or exempt worker, federal law requires that your employer pays you at least time and half for any time over 40 hours you work in a single work week. Many employers, or in some cases managers for companies, will intentionally try to avoid this obligation.

Get paid for your off the clock work

Imagine walking into work and our boss immediately asks you to start a project before you even punch the clock. Will you be paid for the work? What about all the time you have spent there after-hours, working off the clock to finish a project? Are you entitled to back pay for the work?
