FROM THE INBOX....
You asked, we answered!

QUESTION: I am confused about overtime and double-time as it relates to California prevailing wage. Some of the prevailing wage determinations require overtime after 12 hours and some do not. What is the rule?
 
ANSWER:  
Great Question! The general rule is the overtime at one and one half the regular wage rate is required after 8 hours a day on prevailing wage work. If double-time is listed in a prevailing wage determination, then that must be paid after 12 hours of work in a day. No exceptions to either of these rules. However, if the prevailing wage determination does not have a daily double-time rule, then the State of California will still require double-time be paid for all work over 12 hours in a single day, unless you are union signatory and your collective bargaining agreement does not require double-time after 12 hours in a day. Yes, that is a double standard, but this exception is written into the law.
