In California, overtime is paid at one-and-a-half times your regular rate of pay for all time worked over 8 hours a day or 40 hours in a week. In addition, time worked over 12 hours in a day or over 8 hours on the seventh consecutive day are to be paid at twice your regular rate of pay.
For example, if your regular rate of pay is $10/hr, anything over 8 hours in a single day (or over 40 hours in a single week) should be paid at the rate of $15/hr. Anything over 12 hours in a single day should be paid at $20/hr.
