California State Minimum Wage and
Overtime Law Resource Page

The minimum wage for the state of California is set at $6.75 per hour based on an 8 hour day, 40 hour workweek. If more than 8 hours are worked in a day, overtime of no less than one and a half times the pay is due. This is not applicable if an alternative workweek (no more than four days at 10 hours) was agreed upon prior to June 1, 1999. If more than 12 hours is worked in a day, double time is due. The first 8 hours worked on the 7th day of a 40 hour workweek, time and a half is due; every hour after that, double time is due. This is not to be applied if the employee's total weekly hours do not exceed 30 and whose total hours in any one work day do not exceed 6, in specific wage and hour orders.
