Employment clauses to beware, Part 1

You may not have read your employment contract but you should. Employment contracts contain a multitude of terms. In fact, you may not even realize that you signed an employment contract. Employee handbooks are a type of contract that is just as binding as any other contract. This post will go over some of the more common clauses and how they may affect you.

Convenience store manager gets back pay

An overworked convenience store manager received back pay for denied overtime after an investigation by the Wage and Hour Division. The convenience store manager, Mr. Zach Forrestall, worked numerous long hours for his employer despite never receiving overtime. The employer failed to pay both Mr. Forrestall's and his colleague's overtime.

Governor receives overtime expansion bill for farm workers

The California Assembly sent a contentious new bill that would dramatically expand overtime rules for farmworkers. It is unclear if the Governor will sign off on the measure as it is vigorously opposed by business and farming groups. Workers in California have enjoyed overtime benefits for years. The typical employee receives overtime (time and a half pay) when they work more than 8 hours in a day or more than 40 in a week. They receive double-pay if they work more than 12 hours in a single day.
