Employment Law Attorney Fontana
Employment Law Attorneys For Employees in Fontana: The city of Fontana in San Bernardino County, California is home to well over 200,000 residents and is the second most populated city in the county.
The city was originally founded in 1913 by Azariel Blanchard Miller, but after Henry J. Kaiser set up a steel mill in the area during World War II, Fontana experienced a surge of residents and employers. While the steel industry is no longer the leading economic driver in the area, the city has transformed into a regional hub for the trucking industry as both State Route 210 and Interstate 10 transect the city from east to west, and Interstate 15 passes through diagonally from north to west.
Recent Changes in Overtime Rules in the Trucking Industry
After years of debating and battling between employers and their employees, the United State Department of Labor published brand new regulations in May regarding who will be paid by salary and who will be paid by the hour in the trucking industry.
These changes went into effect as of December 1, 2016. Most of the jobs affected by this new overtime rule include:
- Administrative jobs
- Executive positions
- Professional workers
Generally speaking, those who must now be paid by salary include supervisors of two or more employees, managers who must use their judgment and discretion to make an important decision, or employees who have obtained an advanced degree to secure their position.
What about Overtime for Truckers?
In California, all employees who work more than 40 hours are generally entitled to overtime pay. There are, however, a number of issues which may come into play including:
- How heavy your vehicle is
- Where you are traveling
- If you are operating a farm labor vehicle or transporting hazardous waste
- If your trailer is over 40 feet in length
