7 Days in a Row
Your Right to Time and a Half for the Seventh Day of Work in a Workweek
It is important to note that a workweek begins on the same day each week; therefore, it includes seven consecutive 24-hour periods. According to the California Labor Code, Section 510, “the first eight hours worked on the seventh day of work in any one workweek shall be compensated at the rate of no less than one and one-half times the regular rate of pay for an employee.”
If you think that your current or former employer may not have paid you overtime wages at one and a half times your regular rate of pay for working seven consecutive days in a workweek, contact an experienced attorney at Blumenthal, Nordrehaug & Bhowmik to see how you can recover those overtime wages, regular wages, or other benefits that you earned, but were not paid.
Overtime on the Seventh Day Entitles You to Double Your Regular Rate
Section 510 of the California Labor Code further states, “In addition, any work in excess of eight hours on any seventh day of a workweek shall be compensated at the rate of no less than twice the regular rate of pay of an employee.”
Employees are usually aware of the fact that they are entitled to be compensated at one and a half times their regular rate of pay for all hours worked in excess of eight hours in a workday or forty hours in a workweek. However, sometimes employees forget that they are also entitled to one and a half times their regular rate of pay for working seven days in a row. Most importantly, employees may not realize that they are suppose to be receiving two times their regular rate of pay for hours worked in excess of eight hours on a seventh consecutive workday.
