California has arguably the greatest amount of wage and hour laws on the books of any state, and the deck is stacked against employers trying to comply with them.

Processing payroll and keeping in compliance with California overtime rules can be a complex situation.

And … if the payroll department fails to comply or commits the tiniest infraction, serious penalties can and do occur.

Plus, there are areas where California follows federal FLSA rules—but you need to know which ones, and understand the California differences in the FLSA and federal Wage and hour law.
