EL SEGUNDO, CA (July 30, 2010)—“California labor law is often unique compared to most other states,” says Chris Adishian, President of the Adishian Law Group. “One of the most frequently asked questions is about overtime. In California, for the purposes of overtime, the hours worked by hourly employees are computed each day. If an employee works more than eight hours in any given day—regardless of the number of hours worked during the entire week—the additional hours are subject to overtime calculations.”

Adishian explains, “Not surprisingly, this is a battleground area between employers and employees. Employers generally prefer overtime calculated on a weekly basis, whereas employees want it determined on a daily basis.”
