  • Required payroll given California California

    This question is in regards to California law and if there are required minimum payroll allocations that must be given to retail establishments.

    Having been told by a number of supervisors that we were always provided with a specific minimum number of hours to distribute among our employees due to California law (not including hours we worked), it came as a surprise when this month our supervisors gave us less than that minimum and had no idea what we were talking about when we asked about it - considering that it has been the common minimum for 3+ years, and locations outside of California are routinely given much less.

    I am curious if there is in fact a law in California that dictates how many payroll hours must be provided to a retail location to distribute to its employees and what it is for reference.

    Please post if more information is needed.

    I was going to reply to this, but my info is so outdated, it's not funny.
    Be patient and someone will be along this AM and they will likely help.

    Keep in mind that the information provided may not be worth any more than either a politician's promise or what you paid for it (nothing).

      I really really really don't think there is such a law. What your supervisors told you may have been company policy as opposed to law. Unfortunately, many people in supervisory positions are not well-versed in employment law.

      That said though, if there is such a law, I'd really like to hear about it! Sounds very strange!

        There is no such law in CA or any other state.
        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.

            That's exactly what I was thinking. But, as my experience is so outdated (from back in the days when EE was in diapers), I felt I best hold off instead of giving the wrong advice!

              I also agree - no such law. (could be co. policy/practice)
              Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. Leo Buscaglia

                Thanks for the replies everyone!

                I'm going to guess that our supervisors always assumed it was law based on all the different labor law nuances, and the number they had given to us prior was taking into account following all the laws applicable while giving the least payroll possible - but now someone has come along with some different math and voila, less payroll while still maintaining labor laws.

                  Quite possibly the case. It happens quite frequently that people, even employers who should know what is law and what is policy, confuse the two and assume that a policy is, in fact, law.
