Am I Entitled To Pay For The Time It Takes To Report To Work?

A local restaurant had a policy of overstaffing for certain shifts. If business was slow, half of the servers would be cut and sent home without any pay for that shift. Over time, the servers began to wonder if their employer's actions were legal.

As an employee in California, you may be entitled to partial pay for reporting to work and getting cut early. Lack of proper scheduling for shifts and failure to pay reporting time pay is a violation of your rights.

In California, reporting time pay is calculated based on a number of factors. If an employee shows up to work, but is only needed for some/part of the shift, he or she is entitled to a specific amount of pay. Reporting time pay in excess of 40 hours per week is not used for overtime calculations.
