Should I be getting paid overtime (x1.5) for working over 8 hours a day along with working over 40 hours a week in one pay period in CA?

I often work 11.5 hours a shift 4 days a week which equal out to 46 hours a week. So should I get the x1.5 for over 8 hours a day along with the x1.5 for over 40 hours a week?

In California, the general overtime provisions are that a nonexempt employee 18 years of age or older, or any minor employee 16 or 17 years of age who is not required by law to attend school and is not otherwise prohibited by law from engaging in the subject work, shall not be employed more than eight hours in any workday or more than 40 hours in any workweek unless he or she receives one and one-half times his or her regular rate of pay for all hours worked over eight hours in any workday and over 40 hours in the workweek.

Yes but since I have 6 over the 40 hrs week AND 14 hrs over 8 hrs per day would that be 20 hours at x1.5

You are not entitled to both. I suggest you contact the Dept. of Industrial Relations at the office nearest you. The "contact us" prompt lists the addresses and phone numbers. Good luck to you.

You don't mention where you are. Different states have different laws about this.

Where I live, everyone is entitled to overtime after 44 hours in one week. Where do you live?
