California Workplace Flexibility Act of 2013

State: California
Subject: Flexible Work Schedules
Bill: SB 607
Introduced and referred to Committee on Rules: 02/22/13
Referred to Committee on Labor & Industrial Relations: 03/11/13
Hearing & failed passage in Committee on Labor & Industrial Relations: 04/24/13
Returned to Secretary of Senate pursuant to Joint Rule 56: 02/03/14

Current state law sets a workday as eight hours and requires that overtime be paid for any additional work hours in a day or more than 40 hours in a week, unless two-thirds of workers in a unit adopt an alternate schedule of workdays lasting up to ten hours.

This bill would allow any individual nonexempt worker to request to work a flexible schedule of up to ten hours in a day (totaling no more than 40 hours in a week) before being paid overtime.

Employers would be able to implement this schedule without any obligation to pay overtime.
