There are two major California wage and hour bills that California employers should be aware of and monitor. We have outlined both below:
Four-Day Workweek Bill Halted
Assembly Bill 2932, known as the four-day workweek bill, was introduced earlier this year, seeking to redefine and shorten the workweek.
Current California law requires that work in excess of 40 hours in a workweek be compensated at a rate of at least one and one-half times the employee’s regular rate of pay, subject to certain exceptions. AB 2932 proposes that an employee be paid one and one-half times their regular rate of pay for all hours worked in excess of 32 hours per workweek, rather than 40.
