professional  capacities.  The  following  requirements  shall  apply  in  determining  whether  an  employee’s  duties  meet  the  test to  
qualify for  an exemption from those  sections: 
(1) 	 Executive Exemption. A person employed in an  executive capacity means any  employee: 
(a) 	 Whose  duties and  responsibilities  involve the  management  of  the  enterprise  in which  he/she  is  employed  or  
of  a customarily recognized department or subdivision thereof;  and 	
(b) 	 Who  customarily  and  regularly  directs  the  work  of  two  or  more  other  employees  therein;  and

weight;  and 	
(d) 	 Who customarily and regularly exercises discretion and independent judgment;  and 	
(e) 	 Who  is primarily  engaged  in duties  which  meet  the test of  the  exemption.  The  activities  constituting  exempt  work

Fair  Labor Standards  Act  effective  as  of  the  date  of this  order:  29 C.F.R.  Sections  541.102,  541.104- 111, and  541.15- 116. 
Exempt  work  shall include,  for  example,  all  work  that  is  directly  and  closely  related  to exempt  work  and  work  which  is  properly  
viewed  as  a  means  for  ca rrying  out  exempt  functions.  The  work  actually  performed  by the  employee  during the course  of the  
workweek  must,  first and  foremost, be  examined and the amount  of time  the  employee  spends on  such  work,  together  with  the  
employer’s  realistic  expectations  and  the realistic  requirements  of  the  job,  shall be  considered  in determining  whether the 
employee  satisfies this  requirement. 	
(f) 	 Such  an employee  must also  earn   a monthly  salary  equivalent  to  no  less  than  two (2)  times  the  state  minimum  
wage for  full -time  employment.  Full-time  employment  is  defined  in Labor  Code  Section  515(c) as  40  hours  per  week.  	
(2) 	 Administrative Exemption. A person employed in an administrative capacity means any  employee:  
(a) 	 Whose duties and responsibilities  involve either:

institution, or  of   a  department  or  subdivision  thereof,  in  work  directly  related  to the  academic  instruction  or training  carried on  
therein;  and 	
(b) 	 Who customarily and regularly exercises discretion and independent judgment;  and 	
(c) 	 Who  regularly  and  directly  assists  a  proprietor, or  an  employee  employed in  a  bona  fide executive  or  
administrative capacity (as such terms are defined  for purposes of this section);  or

training, experience, or knowledge;  or  	
(e) 	 Who executes under only general supervision special assignments and tasks;  and  	
(f)  Who  is primarily  engaged  in duties  which  meet  the test of  the  exemption.  The  activities  constituting  exempt work 
and non- exempt work shall be construed in the same manner as such terms are construed in the following regulations under the 
Fair  Labor Standards Act effective as of the date of this order: 29 C.F.R.  Sections 541.201-205, 541.207-208, 541.210, and 541.215.

years of  age  who are  not  required  by law  to  attend  school and  are not  otherwise  prohibited  by law  from  engaging  in  the  subject  
work.  Such employees  shall  not  be  employed  more than  eight (8)  hours  in  any  workday  or  more  than  40 hours  in  any  
workweek  unless  the employee  receives one and one-half (1	
1/2)
  times  such  employee’s  regular  rate  of pay  for  all  hours  
worked  over 40  hours  in  the workweek.  Eight  (8)  hours  of  labor  constitutes  a  day’s  work.  Employment  beyond  eight (8)  hours  
in  any  workday  or  more  than  six (6) days  in  any  workweek  is  permissible  provided  the employee  is compensated  for such  
overtime  at not  less  than:  	
(a) 	 One and  one-half (1	1/2)
  times  the  employee’s  regular  rate  of pay  for  all  hours  worked  in excess  of  eight  (8) 
hours  up  to and  including  12 hours  in  any  workday,  and  for the  first eight  (8)  hours  worked  on the  seventh  (7	th)  consecutive  
day  of  work  in  a workweek;  and 	
(b) 	 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 (8) hours on the seventh (7	th) consecutive day of work in a workweek.  The overtime rate of 
compensation required to be  paid to a nonexempt full-time salaried employee shall be  computed by  using  the  employee’s  regular  
hourly  salary  as  one- fortieth  (1/40) of  the  employee’s  weekly  salary. 
(B) Alternative Workweek  Schedules  	
(1) No employer shall be deemed to have  violated the daily overtime provisions by  instituting, pursuant to the election 
procedures  set  forth  in this  wage  order, a  regularly  scheduled  alternative  workweek schedule  of not  more  than  ten (10) hours  
per  day  within  a  40  hour  workweek  without  the  payment  of  an  overtime  rate of compensation. All  work  performed  in any  workday  
beyond  the schedule  established by the  agreement  up  to 12  hours  a  day  or  beyond  40 hours  per  week  shall  be  paid  at one  
and  one-half (1	
1/2) times
 the  employee’s  regular  rate  of pay.  All work  performed  in excess  of  12  hours  per  day  and  any  work  in  
excess  of  eight  (8)  hours on those days  worked beyond the regularly scheduled  number of workdays  established  by  the  
alternative  workweek  agreement shall  be  paid  at double  the employee’s  regular  rate  of pay.  Any  alternative  workweek 
agreement  adopted  pursuant to  this  section shall  provide  for not  less  than  four (4)  hours  of  work  in  any  shift.  Nothing  in this  
section  shall  prohibit  an  employer,  at  the  request  of the employee, to substitute one  day of work  for another  day of the same length 
in the shift provided  by the alternative  workweek agreement  on  an occasional  basis  to  meet  the  personal  needs  of  the  employee  
without  the  payment  of  overtime.  No  hours  paid  at either  one  and one-half (1	
1/2)
  or  double  the regular  rate  of pay  shall  be 
included  in determining  when 40 hours  have 	
been  worked  for the purpose of computing overtime  compensation. 	
(2) 	 If an  employer  whose  employees  have  adopted  an alternative  workweek agreement  permitted  by this  order  requires  
an employee to work  fewer hours than those that are regularly scheduled  by the agreement, the employer shall pay the employee 
overtime compensation  at a  rate  of one  and one- half (1	
1/2)
  times  the  employee’s  regular  rate  of pay  for  all  hours  worked  in 
excess  of  eight  (8) hours,  and  double  the employee’s  regular  rate  of pay  for  all  hours  worked  in excess  of  12  hours  for  the  day 
the  employee  is required to work the reduced  hours. 	
(3) 	 An employer  shall  not  reduce  an employee’s  regular  rate  of  hourly  pay  as  a  result  of  the  adoption,  repeal  or  nullification  
of an alternative workweek  schedule.  	
(4) 	 An employer shall explore any available reasonable alternative means of accommodating the religious belief or  
observance of  an  affected  employee  that conflicts  with  an  adopted  alternative  workweek schedule,  in  the  manner  provided  by 
subdivision  (j)  of Section 12940 of the Government  Code.  	
(5) 	 An employer  shall  make  a  reasonable  effort to  find  a  work  schedule  not to  exceed  eight  (8)  hours  in  a  workday,  in  
order  to  accommodate any  affected employee who  was eligible  to vote  in an election authorized  by this  section  and who is unable 
to  work  the alternative workweek schedule established as the result of that  election.  	
(6) 	 An employer shall be permitted, but not required, to provide a work schedule not to exceed eight (8) hours in a workday  
to accommodate  any employee  who is  hired  after the  date  of the  election  and  who  is  unable  to  work  the  alternative  workweek  
schedule established  by the  election.  	
(7) 	 Arrangements  adopted  in a  secret  ballot  election  held pursuant  to  this  order  prior  to  1998,  or  under  the  rules  in  effect  
prior  to 1998, and before the performance of the work, shall remain valid after July 1, 2000 provided that the results of the election 
are  reported  by the employer to the Office of Policy, Research and Legislation by  January 1, 2001, in accordance with the 
requirements  of subsection (C) below (Election Procedures). If an employee was voluntarily working an alternative workweek 
schedule of  not   more than  ten  (10) hours  a  day  as  of  July  1, 1999,  that  alternative  workweek schedule  was based  on an 
individual  agreement  made  after January 1, 1998 between the employee and  employer, and the  employee  submitted, and  the 
employer  approved, a written   request on or before  May 30,  2000  to continue  the agreement,  the  employee  may continue  
to  work  that  alternative  workweek schedule without payment of an overtime rate of compensation for  the hours provided in the 
agreement. The employee may revoke  his/her voluntary  authorization  to continue  such  a  schedule  with  30  days  written  notice 
to  the  employer.  New arrangements  can  only be entered into pursuant to the provisions of this  section.  
(C) Election  Procedures 
Election procedures  for the adoption and repeal of alternative workweek schedules require the following:  
(1)  Each proposal for  an alternative workweek schedule shall be in the form of a written agreement proposed by  the 
employer.  The proposed agreement must designate a regularly scheduled alternative workweek  in which  the  specified  number 
of  work   days and  work hours  are  regularly  recurring.  The  actual  days  worked  within that  alternative  workweek  schedule  need 
not  be  specified.  The employer  may  propose  a single  work  schedule  that would  become  the standard  schedule  for workers  in  
the  work  unit,  or  a  menu  of work  schedule  options, from  which  each  employee  in the  unit would  be  entitled  to choose.  If  the

—	5 	 	
2 	
employer proposes  a  menu  of  work schedule  options, the  employee  may, with  the  approval  of  the  employer,  move from  one 
menu  option  to another.  
(2)  In order  to  be  valid,  the  proposed  alternative  workweek  schedule  must be  adopted  in a  secret  ballot  election,  before 
the performance  of work,  by  at  least  a  two -thirds  (2/3)  vote  of the  affected  employees  in  the  work  unit.  The  election  shall be  
held  during regular working hours at the employees’ work site.  For purposes of this subsection, ―affected  employees in the work 
unit‖ may  include all  employees  in  a  readily  identifiable  work unit,  such  as  a  division,  a  department,  a  job  classification,  a  
shift,  a  separate  physical location,  or  a  recognized  subdivision of  any  such  work  unit. A  work  unit  may  consist  of  an  individual  
employee  as long  as the  criteria  for  an identifiable work unit in this subsection are  met. 
(3)  Prior to the secret ballot vote, any employer who proposed to institute an alternative workweek schedule shall have    
made a  disclosure  in  writing  to  the  affected  employees,  including  the  effects  of  the  proposed  arrangement  on  the  employees’  
wages,  hours, and  benefits. Such  a disclosure  shall  include  meeting(s),  duly  noticed,  held  at least  14  days  prior  to  voting,  for  the  
specific  purpose of discussing  the  effects  of  the  alternative  workweek schedule. An  employer shall  provide  that disclosure  in  a  
non- English  language,  as  well  as  in  English,  if  at  least  five  (5) percent  of the  affected employees  primarily  speak that  non- English  
language.  The  employer  shall mail  the  written  disclosure  to  employees  who  do  not attend  the meeting.  Failure  to comply  with this  
paragraph  shall make  the  election null and  void. 	
(4) Any  election  to establish  or  repeal  an  alternative  workweek schedule  shall be held  at the  work  site  of  the  affected 
employees. The employer shall bear the costs of conducting any election held pursuant to this section. Upon a complaint by  an 
affected  employee, and  after an  investigation  by the  labor  commissioner,  the  labor  commissioner  may  require  the employer  to 
select  a  neutral  third  party to conduct the  election. 
(5)  Any  type  of alternative  workweek schedule  that is  authorized  by  the  Labor  Code  may be repealed  by the  
affected employees.  Upon  a petition  of one- third  (1/3) of  the  affected  employees,  a  new  secret  ballot  election  shall be  held  and 
a  two -thirds (2/3) vote of the affected employees shall be required to reverse the alternative workweek schedule. The election to 
repeal  the alternative workweek schedule shall be held not more than 30 days  after the petition is submitted to the employer, except 
that  the election  shall be  held  not  less  than  12 months  after  the  date  that the  same  group  of employees  voted  in an  election  
held  to adopt  or repeal  an  alternative  workweek schedule.  The  election  shall  take  place  during  regular working  hours at  the  
employees’  work  site. If the alternative workweek schedule is revoked,  the employer shall  comply  within  60  days.  Upon  proper  
showing  of   undue hardship,  the  Division  of  Labor  Standards  Enforcement  may  grant  an  extension  of time  for  compliance.  
(6)  Only  secret  ballots  may  be  cast  by  affected  employees  in  the  work  unit  at  any  election  held  pursuant  to  this  section.  
The results  of  any  election  conducted  pursuant to  this  section  shall  be reported  by the  employer  to  the  Office  of Policy,  
Research  and Legislation  within 30  days  after  the  results  are  final,  and  the report  of  election  results shall  be  a public  document. 
The  report  shall include the final tally of the  vote, the size of the unit, and the nature of the business of the  employer. 
(7) Employees  affected  by a  change  in the  work  hours  resulting  from the  adoption  of an  alternative  workweek schedule 
may  not  be  required  to work  those  new work  hours  for  at  least  30  days  after  the  announcement  of  the  final  results  of  the  election.  
(8)  Employers  shall  not  intimidate  or coerce  employees  to  vote  either  in  support  of  or  in  opposition  to a proposed  
alternative workweek.  No  employees  shall  be discharged  or discriminated  against for  expressing  opinions concerning  the 
alternative  workweek election or for  opposing or supporting its adoption or repeal. However,  nothing in this section shall prohibit 
an employer from  expressing his/her position concerning that alternative workweek to the affected employees. A violation of this 
paragraph shall be subject to  Labor Code Section 98  et seq.  
(D)  One  and  one-half  (1	
1/2)
  times  a  minor’s  regular  rate  of  pay  shall  be  paid  for all  work  over  40  hours  in  any  workweek  
except minors 16 or 17 years old who are not required by  law to attend school and may therefore be employed for the same hours 
as an  adult are subject to subsection (A) or (B) and (C)  above.  
( VIOLATIONS  OF  CHILD  LABOR  LAWS are  subject  to  civil  penalties  of  from  $500  to  $10,000  as well  as  to  criminal  
penalt ies. Refer  to  California  Labor Code  Sections  1285  to 1312  and 1390  to 1399  for additional  restrictions  on  the 
employment of  minors  and  for descriptions  of  criminal  and civil  penalties  for  violation  of  the  child  labor  laws.  Employers  
should  ask school districts about any required work permits.)  
(E)  An employee  may  be  employed  on seven  (7)  workdays  in  one  workweek  when  the  total  hours  of  employment  during  
such workweek  do  not exceed  30 and  the total  hours  of  employment  in  any  one  workday  thereof  do  not exceed  six (6).  	
(F)  If a  meal  period  occurs on  a shift  beginning  or ending  at or  between  the hours  of  10  p.m.  and 6 a.m.,  facilities  shall be  
avail - able  for  securing  hot food  and drink  or  for  heating  food or drink,  and  a suitable  sheltered  place shall  be provided  in which  
to  consume such food or  drink.  
(G)  The provisions  of this  section  shall not apply  to  employees  whose  duties  are  exclusively  those of a  motion  picture 
projectionist.  
(H) The  provisions  of  Labor  Code  Sections  551  and 552  regarding  one (1) day’s  rest  in  seven  (7)  shall  not  be  construed  to 
pre vent  an accumulation  of days  of  rest  when  the nature  of the  employment  reasonably  requires  the  employee  to work  seven  (7) 
or  more consecutive  days; provided,  however,  that  in  each  calendar  month,  the  employee  shall receive  the equivalent  of  one  (1) 
day’s  rest  in  seven  (7).  
(I)  Except  as  provided  in  subsections  (D)  and  (H), this  section  shall  not  apply  to  any  employee  covered by a  valid  collective  
bar -  gaining  agreement  if  the  agreement  expressly  provides for  the  wages,  hours  of  work,  and  working  conditions  of  the  
employees,  and  if the agreement provides premium wage rates for all overtime hours worked and a regular hourly rate of pay for 
those employees of  not less than 30 percent more than the state minimum  wage.  
(J)  Notwithstanding  subsection (I) above,  where  the employer  and  a labor  organization  representing  employees of  the  
employer  have entered into a valid collective bargaining agreement pertaining to the hours of work  of  the  employees,  the   
requirement regarding  the equivalent  of  one  (1) day’s  rest  in  seven  (7)  (see  subsection  (H) above)  shall  apply,  unless  the  
agreement  expressly provides otherwise.

personal obligation  of the  employee,  the  hours  of  that  makeup  work time,  if  performed  in the  same  workweek  in  which  the  work  
time  was lost, may  not  be  counted  toward computing  the total  number  of  hours  worked  in a  day  for  purposes  of  the  overtime  
requirements,  except  for hours  in  excess  of 11  hours  of  work  in  one  (1) day or  40  hours  of  work  in  one  (1) workweek.  If  an

that  the  makeup  work must  be  performed in the same week that the work time was lost. An employee shall provide a signed 
written request for  each occasion that the  employee makes a  request  to  make  up work  time  pursuant  to  this  subsection.  While  
an  employer  may  inform  an  employee  of this  makeup  time option, the employer is prohibited from encouraging or otherwise
