New California Wage and Hour Law Seminar

Wage and Hour Law-California laws 2021

As of September 2021 current business standards require compliance regarding employee rights based on California's stipulated wage and hour laws; monitoring personal current documentation notes is recommended as they may change accordingly without notice sometimes!

The major key aspects can be broken down into five main categories: 

To begin with, it is vital information to acknowledge that California sets their minimum wage beyond federal standards ($7.25 hourly). Calculated depending on company size; employers having twenty-five or fewer workers require a $13 hourly rate metric base, companies having twenty-six or more personnel need a minimum starting point at $14

Also important : Employees that meet the non-exempt classification have the right to collect overtime pay of 1.5 times their usual rate due to any extended work time above eight hours every day or forty hours weekly. 
The next one is simple: California state law mandates that any staff working over five hours per given shift must receive at least thirty minutes' worth of meal breaks without performing any work-related tasks during these pauses. 

Workers putting in over ten total hours per day are allowed two thirty-minute breaks instead. 
However, accompanying these official break periods applies for rest periods taken during labor days as well. 

Ten-minute intervals should be allowed by the employer for every four-hour period worked or equivalent if applicable. 
For payment terms, employers must choose legitimate regular payment dates while ensuring all workers are aware and posted in workplace visible locations precisely (permitting overtime regulations too). Employers must make sure all wages earned preceding month's 16th are paid out before its conclusion, whereas, after this date payments must be issued from the tenth until final day period of the following month separately regardless of overtime status included!
