Proving overtime claims when there has been inadequate record-keeping

02 Apr Proving overtime claims when there has been inadequate record-keeping

California law requires employers to keep and maintain records on the hours that their non-exempt employees work. If they fail to do so, they can be liable for penalties under the California labor code.

In addition, if the employer is being sued for failure to pay overtime, for instance, and they don’t have records, then the court will allow the employee who is suing to estimate the amount of overtime they have worked and take that into consideration in determining how much the employee is entitled to recover.
