  • 16 hour shift with no overtime in CA

    I recently worked a 16 hour shift from 4pm to 8am, and was told that since the new day starts at midnight, I would receive no overtime for the shift. Is this allowed?

    That is correct under the law. Each work day stands alone.
    I don't respond to Private Messages unless the moderator specifically refers you to me for that purpose. Thank you.

      Did you work again the same day the last 8 hours fell on?

        Sockeye has a good point, if you worked on the same day where you worked midnight to 8am then you'd be entitled to overtime.

        CA Labor Code defines a workday as:
        (a) "Workday" and "day" mean any consecutive 24-hour period
        commencing at the same time each calendar day.
