Overtime for Work Performed in Excess of 9 hours Per Day

On September 26, 2013, Governor Brown signed the California Domestic Workers Bill of Rights. The new law will only be effective from January 1, 2014 to January 1, 2017.

Under the new law, certain domestic workers have the right to earn overtime for work performed in excess of 9 hours per day or 45 hours per week. The overtime rate is time and one half the regular rate of pay. This is a link to the new law (AB 241): http://leginfo.legislature.ca.gov/faces/billNavClient.xhtml?bill_id=201320140AB241
