  • Split Shift Question!! California

    First off I'm in CA.

    My employer requires that I attend a regularly scheduled meeting from 9am-9:30am, then work my regularly scheduled shift from 1pm-7pm. I make a little bit above minimum wage... my question is. I commute an hour to work, so reporting to work for 30 min meeting seems bogus to me. Am I entitled to split shift pay, or anything else for that matter?

    Thanks in advance for the help!

    You would most likely be entitled to one additional hour's pay at minimum wage. This hour of pay is not an hour "worked" so it does not need to be counted toward overtime calculations. Look under Section 4 here:

    Although Wage Orders can be specific to the type of industry, this one covers most types of businesses.
    I don't respond to Private Messages unless the moderator specifically refers you to me for that purpose. Thank you.
