When a group of employees are cheated by the employer they can bring a collective unpaid overtime lawsuit called a class action. Usually one employee brings the action for the group.

Requiring employees to work off-the-clock without counting hours worked
Incorrectly calculating overtime pay to knock off your money

The California Industrial Relations Board Is Clear

“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. Eight hours of labor constitutes a day’s work, and employment beyond eight hours in any workday or more than six days in any workweek is permissible provided the employee is compensated for the overtime at not less than:

One and one-half times the employee’s regular rate of pay for all hours worked in excess of eight hours up to and including 12 hours in any workday, and for the first eight hours worked on the seventh consecutive day of work in a workweek; and
Double the employee’s regular rate of pay for all hours worked in excess of 12 hours in any workday and for all hours worked in excess of eight on the seventh consecutive day of work in a workweek.
There are, however, a number of exemptions from the overtime law. An “exemption” means that the overtime law does not apply to a particular classification of employees. There are also a number of exceptions to the general overtime law stated above. An “exception” means that overtime is paid to a certain classification of employees on a basis that differs from that stated above.”

What Is My Entitled Overtime Pay?

Overtime is any hours you  worked over 8 hours in a day or 40 hours in a week. If your company has an alternate work week in which you normally work 10 hour days, 4 days a week  the overtime is after 10 hours rather than 8, but still after 40 in the work week.

Restaurants Violate Overtime Laws

An overtime lawsuit for about 134,000 Taco Bell workers has been settled against this fast-food chain.
A California overtime lawsuit claims  IHOP and Applebee cheated employees out of overtime pay.
