Holiday Pay Laws In California
Employers in California are generally not required by law to offer you a paid holiday. Additionally, if you work overtime on holidays, the law doesn't require them to pay a premium rate for overtime on holidays. But many employers choose to pay their employees more if they work overtime on holidays. If your employer promises to pay you for holidays in your employment contract, or if you belong to a union and your collective bargaining agreement contains a provision for paid holidays, your employer is legally required to do so. Similarly, if your employment contract or collective bargaining agreement has a provision for premium rates of overtime on holidays worked, your employer is required to pay accordingly.
Do California employers have to provide paid time off for holidays?
Many workers in California look forward to the holiday season, but what about the employees who must clock in and work on holidays? Are California employers required to provide paid time off for holidays? The answer is not a simple yes or no. While no state law requires employers to provide paid time off for holidays, many employers choose to do so as part of their employee benefits package.
