1. APPLICABILITY OF  ORDER 	
This order shall apply to all persons employed in industries preparing agricultural products for market, on the farm,  whether	 	
paid  on a  time, piece  rate, commission,  or  other  basis,  except  that:  	
(A) 	 Provisions  of Sections   3 through  12 of this  Order  shall  not apply  to  persons  employed  in administrative,  executive,  or	 	
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 or  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  	
(c) 	 Who  has the  authority  to  hire  or  fire  other  employees  or  whose  suggestions  and  recommendations  as  to  the  hiring	 	
or firing  and as to  the  advancement  and  promotion  or any  other  change  of status  of  other  employees  will  be  given  particular  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	 	
and non- exempt work shall be construed in the same manner as such items are construed in the following regulations under  the	 	
Fair  Labor  Standards  Act  effective  as of  the  date  of this  order:  29  C.F.R.  §§  541.102,  541.104- 111, 541.115 -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	 	
carrying out exempt  functions. The work actually performed by  the employee during the course of the work week 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 §  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: 
(i) 	 The performance of office or non- manual work directly related to management policies or general  business	 	
operations of his employer or his  employer’s customers,  or 	
(ii)  	 The  performance  of functions  in  the  administration  of  a  school  system,  or educational  establishment  or	 	
institution,  or  of   a  department  of  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  	
(d)  	 Who performs under only general supervision work along specialized or technical lines requiring special  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.  §§ 541.201- 205, 541.207- 208, 541.210,  541.215.  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  carrying  out exempt  functions.  The  work  actually  performed  by the  employee  during the course of  the  work  week  must,	 	
first  and  foremost,  be examined and the amount  of time the employee spends  on such  work, together  with the employer's realistic

—	4 	 
shall be discharged or in any other manner discriminated against or refusing to work in excess of 72 hours in any one workweek;	 	
and 	
(2) 	Overtime hours shall be compensated  at: 
(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. 	
(c) 	The  overtime  rate of compensation  required to be  paid  to a nonexempt  full -time  salaried  employee  shall be

(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

 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) 	 Any  agreement  adopted  pursuant to  this  section  shall provide  not less  than  two consecutive  days off  within  each	 	
workweek.  	
(3) 	 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. 	
(4) 	 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. 	
(5) 	 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.  	
(6) 	 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.  	
(7) 	 An employer shall be permitted, but not required, to provide a work schedule not to exceed eight (8) hours in a  work-	 	
day 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.  	
(8) 	 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 elect ion are	 	
reported by the employer to the Office of Policy, Research and Legislation  by January 1, 2001, in accordance with  the	 requirements 
of Section 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  or  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 employer  proposes	 	
a menu of work schedule options, the employee  may, with the approval of the  employer, move from one menu option to  another.

(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 shal l 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  alter -	
 	
native 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	 	
that minors  16 and 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	
 penalties. 
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, during  any workday  an  employer  declares  a  work  recess  of  one- half (1/2)  hour  or  more,  other  than  a meal  period,  and  the	
 	
employer  notifies  the employees  of  the  time  to report  back for  work  and  permits  them to  leave  the premises,  such  recess  need not	 	
be treated  as hours  worked  provided  that there  shall not  be  more  than  two (2)  such  recess  periods  within  one shift and  the total  
duration  does not exceed  two (2)  hours.  Work  stoppages  of  less  than  one-half (1/2)  hour  may  not  be  deducted  from hours worked.  	
(G) 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	 	
available for securing hot food and drink or for heating food or drink, and a suitable sheltered place shall be provided in w hich to	 	
consume such food or  drink.  
(H)  The provisions of Labor Code §§ 551 and 552 regarding one (1) day’s  rest in seven (7) shall not be construed to prevent	
 	
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) The provisions of this subsection are not applicable to employees whose hours of service are regulated  by: 
(1)  The  United  States Department  of  Transportation  Code of Federal  Regulations,  title  49,  sections  395.1  to 395.13,  Hours	
 	
of Service of Drivers,  or  
(2)  Title  13  of the  California  Code of Regulations,  subchapter  6.5,  section  1200  and the following  sections,  regulating  hours	
 	
of drivers.  
(J)  Except  as provided in  subsection (A)(1)  and subsections  (D)  and  (H), this  section shall  not  apply  to  any  employee  covered	
 	
by a  valid  collective  bargaining  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.  
(K)  Notwithstanding  subsection (J) 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 section (H) above) shall  apply,   unless  the	 agreement 
expressly provides  otherwise.  	
(L) If an  employer  approves  a  written  request  of  an  employee  to make -up  work  time  that  is  or  would  be lost  as  a  result  of  a	 	
personal obligation of the employee, the hours of that make- up work time, if performed in the same workweek in which the  work

—	6 	 
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	 	
employee  knows in advance  that he  or she  will  be  requesting  make-up time  for  a personal  obligation  that will  recur  at a  fixed  time	 	
over a  succession  of  weeks,  the  employee  may request  to  make- up work  time  for up  to  four  (4)  weeks  in  advance;  provided,	 	
however,  that  the  make- up 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  make- up time  option,  the  employer  is  prohibited  from encouraging  or	 	
otherwise soliciting an  employee  to request  the  employer’s  approval  to  take  personal  time  off and  make- up the  work  hours	 	
within the same workweek pursuant to this  subsection.
