  • Working Overtime California

    At my new job they seem to want employees to stay overtime. I have worked overtime everyday, but its usually a half hour to an hour. Can they force employees to work overtime, and if my overtime levels are not enough, terminate me?

    yep and yep.
    My intention is not to argue over who is wrong/right. I am here for the discussion and to learn and teach. If you dislike what I have to say or think I question you when I shouldn't, then by all means add me to your ignore list.

      interested to know what was your job spec / descrpt. on your particular position said. Company usually don't want you to work overtime, but am curious to know.

        The answer has not changed since the last time you asked it on February 24, less than two weeks ago. Mandatory overtime was legal then; it is still legal now. And since I am not aware of any legislation currently under review that would change this, no doubt it will still be legal the next time you ask.

        The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.

              I think what makes it confusing is that at one job they say its not okay, and another they say it is. I guess not all employers are up to date on laws.

              Well I'll just continue to work overtime.


              Thanks,

                That would be because some companies have policies to minimize OT. That doesn't make it a law. If they want to refuse to allow you to work OT, they may. If they want to force you to work OT, they may.
                I post with the full knowledge and support of my employer, though the opinions rendered are my own and not necessarily representative of their position. In other words, I'm a free agent.

                  Here you go, straight from the DLSE website. Scroll down to question 7.

                  http://www.dir.ca.gov/dlse/FAQ_Overtime.htm

                  That should resolve the issue for you. Mandatory overtime is permitted by CA law.
