HN7 Overtime & Work Periods

Industrial Welfare Commission Wage Order No. 7-2001 (Cal. Code Regs., tit. 8, § 11070) requires reporting time pay if an employee is required to report for work and does report, but is not put to work or is furnished less than half said employee’s usual or scheduled day’s work. § 11070, subd. 5(A). In other words, an employee is owed reporting time pay only if upon reporting for work, she is denied the opportunity to work.

HN8 Overtime & Work Periods

Employers do not trigger reporting time pay requirements merely by expecting employees to apprise themselves of their schedules. It goes without saying that an employee cannot arrive at work on time without knowing when his or her shift begins.
