California’s Reporting Time Pay Applies to Telephone Calls to Confirm Scheduled Shifts

Jackson Lewis P.C. • February 11, 2019
For more than 75 years, California’s Wage Order No. 7 has required employers to compensate employees with reporting time pay if employees are required to report for work and in fact show up, but are then provided less than an established minimum number of hours of work or are provided with no work at all. Instead of actually requiring appearance at the workplace, suppose employees are merely required to call in advance to confirm whether they are needed for a scheduled shift: have employees “reported for work,” such that they are entitled to reporting time pay if the employer tells them they do not need to come in? The answer is yes, according to the California Court of Appeal, Second Appellate District. Ward v. Tilly’s Inc., 2019 Cal. App. LEXIS 95 (Cal. Ct. App. Feb. 4, 2019).
