California Wage and Hour Law Issues
California wage and hour laws provide minimum standards that employers in California must observe in maintaining workers and employees. These laws require employers to pay their workers an hourly minimum wage and a premium for overtime work and work performed on the 7th consecutive workday of the workweek.
A key issue that is often the cause of labor disputes involves a determination of an employer-employee relationship between a business and its workers. When certain employment rights are withheld from a claimant, the common defense raised by the business owner is that the claimant is an independent contractor or one whose work is not covered by wage and hour rules.
As new service models are constantly being developed, unique scenarios not previously contemplated by wage and hour laws can raise legal questions on independent contractor or employee status.
For instance, drivers of ride sharing networks such as Uber have raised issues regarding non-payment of wages and other benefits under wage and hour laws, claiming that they are employees of the lead generating company rather than independent contractors. The latest court decision considers such drivers as employees of the ride sharing business, requiring the company to reimburse drivers for all necessary expenses incurred while driving and to pay the driver the hourly minimum wage for all hours worked during the workweek, including overtime.
