Newport Beach workers deserve fair pay for their work

We want you to know these facts about working in Newport Beach:

  • For employers with 25 or fewer employees, the minimum wage is $11 an hour.
  • For employers with more than 25 employees, the minimum wage is $12 an hour.
  • Overtime is calculated if someone works more than 8 hours a day or 40 hours a week.

These cases are complex, and there are various ways that employers commit wage fraud.

  • Minimum Wage – Employers have to pay the California minimum wage.
  • Overtime – Overtime pay is one and one-half times the regular pay rate, though there are exemptions for certain occupations.
  • Business Expenses – Employees must be reimbursed for business expenses if they spend money on things that are required for them to do their job appropriately.
  • Rest and Meal Time – These rest periods must be provided, and workers must be compensated appropriately if they are now.
  • Late Wage or Commission Payment – Wages must be paid on time all the time. Workers who earn commission must be paid according to their contract and on time.
  • Termination Wages – If an employee is terminate or quits, they must receive payment for their hours worked, including any accrued vacation or paid time off.

Why reporting these practices is difficult

In many cases, workers are afraid to report unfair wage practices because they rely on their job. It is often not easy to find another place to work, and even unreliable wages are better than no wages at all. Minorities and immigrants are particularly at risk of unfair wage practices.
