On August 8, 2017, Governor Brown signed HB 3458 into law.

This new law is doing two things:

  • First, it clarifies the existing statute on daily overtime for manufacturing, mills, and factories so that employers need to pay only the greater of daily or weekly overtime – not both as BOLI has been requiring of employers since January 2017.

    The signing date of the law is important because this fix to the daily overtime portion of the statute takes effect immediately upon signing.

  • Second, the law establishes new maximum weekly work hours in certain industries. These new maximum hour requirements will take effect on January 1, 2018.
