Has your boss ever asked you to do some work without pay? Did you feel like you had no choice, worrying that you would lose your job if you didn’t do it?
If you are like most California workers, you enjoy working overtime, not because you love the extra work, but because you love the time-and-a-half or double-time wage rates you receive. Sometimes you have that money spent in your mind before you even get it. Even if not, your overtime pay is important to you, and you want your employer to pay it as soon as possible.
