  • Overtime hours California

    As an employer How does it work if my hourly employee get paid for a holiday in which the office is closed but works over time on the other days within the 40 hour week. Do I pay them over time for that week. Example. with in a 40 our week they work 2 hours over time but one of the days they did not work and get paid because of a holiday do I pay the 2 hours over time?

    You do not need to pay them overtime unless they WORKED over 40 hours in a week or (in your state) over 8 hours in a day. Vacation time, sick time, holiday time, personal time, or other forms of paid leave do NOT get included in overtime calculations unless you choose to. It is not required by law.
    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.
