  • 7th consecutive day overtime

    Is California the only state that requires overtime be paid for hours worked on the 7th consecutive day in the same workweek? (This question does not apply to labor/union contracts).

    Yes. There are three other states with daily OT laws (Alaska, Colorado, Nevada - plus Puerto Rico) but California is the only one of those with the "7th day worked in the workweek" rule. Everyone else is (more or less) the vanilla federal "40 hours worked in workweek" rule, at least if FLSA is applicable.

      Kentucky has such a law, too.

      According to the US DOL web site (not always 100% accurate), Connecticut has such a provision, but it is limited to restaurant workers.
