  • When does the 72hour clock start - CA

    Hi,

    I resigned from my job last Thursday at 3pm due to problems regarding how much I was to be paid (I was guaranteed an amount for one month, but the GM hadn't signed the pay plan yet - this is a car dealership).

    When exactly does the 72 hour clock start? I am guessing that I should receive my check by 3pm Tuesday the 23rd since the weekend wouldn't count, but I am not sure.

    Also, since I did work for a car dealer, how exactly would the lunch break work? During the week I would work either a 6 or 7 hour shift, on the weekends more like a 8 or 10 hour shift, but it was close to impossible to take a lunch. We had to park off site, be shuttled back and forth and so couldn't leave for lunch.

    Thanks for your help..

    Actually, the law does not exclude weekends or holidays, under general circumstances.

    Were you an exempt employee or were you nonexempt? And, what did you do there?

      Hi Pattymd.

      I was a non-exempt car salesperson.

      After I was hired, I asked them if there was a 3 month guarantee for me - I was new and usually if you ask, they will offer a 3 month guarantee of salary.

      Well after I had been working a week and had filled out all my paperwork before I had started on 5/5 they came back to me on 5/12 and said it was only 1 month of guarantee. This dealership is really slow. The top guys have been there since it has opened in 12/04 so they have referrals.. Us new ones have nothing. I can walk around the lot for 9-10 hours and not see a person walking onto the lot to just look. They all have appts.

      Anyway, the sales manager said that the GM would have to sign it and refused to give me copy until he had. Then they came back on Wednesday the 17th and said it would only be 2 weeks guarantee. I should have quit right then, but wanted to finish my shift and talk to the head guy on Thursday.. found out he wouldn't be in, and the office manager refused to talk or answer my email about how I would be paid - they had me fill out a time sheet on the 17th that went from the 5th to the 15th.

      On thursday I was supposed to start my shift at 2, didn't feel too well and wasn't happy with the circumstances so I emailed them that I am resigning as of that day, send my check and temp sales license to my PO box.

      It is now 2:28pm on Monday and I haven't received my check. I don't know what to do now..

      The office manager runs payroll and she isn't there on the weekends, however, we should have gotten paid on Friday, so I don't see what the delay is. It is only 9 miles away from my house... That is why I figured the weekends didn't count.

      Sorry for being long winded...

        I'd call them tomorrow and ask at what time you can pick up your check.
