What happens when an employer refuses to pay for overtime?

One of life's many joys involves pride over hard work done. Many Californians could agree with this sentiment, but by the same token, there are few better feelings than hanging one's hat for the day. With the gradual decrease of unemployment rates in the country, the outlook on jobs for the average worker seems optimistic. However, there is a recurring problem in today's working world: that of unpaid overtime.

3 ways to prove you worked overtime

Does your employer fail to log your hours? If your workplace does not have a time sheet or time clock, you may not be receiving proper overtime pay. First of all, it is important to note that the Fair Labor Standards Act requires employers to keep records regarding your hourly pay rate, earnings, overtime pay and total wages for each pay period. 

Employers can’t threaten to fire if you refuse unfair wage

Imagine this scenario: your boss tells you and your co-workers that, due to rising expenses, everyone must take a pay cut. However, this would put your earnings under California’s minimum wage. You speak up and tell your boss that the company cannot decrease your wage, but your boss tells you that you have to agree to the change – or you’re fired.
