Who is eligible for overtime pay in Pasadena, CA?

Anyone who works in Pasadena knows that the city has made strides to raise the working conditions of those in the area. They have recently raised the minimum wage, and it will rise each year until it reaches $15 an hour.

Any employer who falls under the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) must pay employees overtime. This generally means employers who generate more than $500,000 in sales annually. For smaller businesses, California law usually protects workers and allows them to collect overtime.

There are exemptions:

  • Administrative employees (if they earn more than twice the minimum wage)
  • Executive employees (if they earn more than twice the minimum wage)
  • Professional employees
    • Architects
    • Accountants
    • Teachers
    • Lawyers
    • Doctors
    • Engineers
    • And more
  • Independent contractors
  • Other special considerations
    • Volunteer workers
    • Some public safety personnel
    • Small farm workers
    • Seasonal recreational and amusement workers

How is Pasadena overtime pay calculated?

Most employees in Pasadena are eligible for overtime, which is mandatory for those who:

  • Work more than 8 hours in a day
  • Work more than 40 hours in a week

When those conditions are met, a person is entitled to 1.5 times their regular hourly rate. For those who work more than 12 hours in a day, they will receive double their regular hourly rate.

We know that many of you reading this may be salaried workers. While your overtime rate is a bit harder to calculate, you are still eligible for overtime pay (unless you are an exempt worker). We will take your monthly salary and multiply it by 12 to get your annual salary. From there, we will divide that by 52 and then again by 40 to get your regular hourly rate.
