Atypically workday consists of 8 hours and for a week that would be 40 hours. Any time worked after that is considered overtime and should be counted as such for non-exempt employees. In California, overtime pay is time and half the regular wage. If you are working over 12 hours in a day then pay is double. However, countless private businesses, companies and corporations are trying to save money at the expense of workers and in doing so violate the law and leave workers without overtime time.
Jobs are a major part of our lifestyle and everyone should be compensated accordingly for the work that they complete each day. Employees should never have to worry about receiving compensation for the work duties they perform. Most think of overtime pay as working beyond your regular work shift but there are other things that can qualify as such like working during your break time.
