Topic Background:

California can sometimes follow the federal rules too. This is especially true when it comes to the actual math needed to calculating overtime including the definition of regular rate of pay, workweek and workday. California is however, a sovereign state so it also has its own requirements for areas of wage and hour law that the federal law does not address including paycheck stub requirements and posting regulations, and the anti-theft wage law passed recently in the state. So the payroll professional processing payroll in California must be familiar with both the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and the California labor Law and know when which one takes priority. With all these different factors to contend with when processing California payrolls, the department must be very diligent for if it fails to comply or commits the tiniest infraction, serious penalties can and do occur.
