To protect employees, California has strict employment laws in place, regulating the number of hours an employee can work and how he or she should be compensated for it.
If you work more than 8 hours in a day or 40 hours in a week, you must compensated for those extra hours at a rate that is higher than your regular rate of pay. Working between 8-12 hours in a day means you should be paid at the rate of time-and-a-half. Working more than 12 hours entitles you to double your normal pay rate.
