  • Minimum Pay for call in - California

    If an employee is told they have a mandatory meeting on their day off what is the minimum amount of hours they are supposed to receive compensation for? This is a non-exempt, hourly person. They live 20 minutes from the company and the meeting is about 45 minutes.

    THanks!

    Here is a link to an explanation of the CA reporting time rule. The length of the employee's commute makes no difference.

    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.

      Ok

      I understand the commute is not a consideration, and the law you refrenced doesn't answer my specific question. It doens't say if an employee is required to attend a meeting on their day off, if they should be compensated for more than the 1 hour meeting since they weren't scheduled to work a shift that day, but still required to come in.

        I have no information in addition to what is provided. If you still have questions, you should contact the CA DOL.
