California employers are fretting about a renewed state law that will raise their overtime costs. It requires time-and-a-half pay for work beyond eight hours in a single day, and double the regular rate after 12 hours in a day.
The law was eliminated in 1998, but the California legislature brought it back to life this year. The law gives owners some flexibility, such as allowing workers to approve an alternative schedule by secret ballot. For details, contact the state's Industrial Work Commission at (916) 322-0167 or www.dir.ca.gov/IWC.
Business owners in other states should stay alert. The activists who revived the Eight-Hour-Day law in California may promote it around the country.
