In California, eligible employees must receive overtime if they work more than eight hours in a day or 40 hours in a week.
After working 12 hours in a day, California employees must receive double time. If an employee works on a seventh day, that employee is entitled to time and a half for the first eight hours of work and double time for additional hours.
Not every type of job is eligible for overtime, however.
