How California Law Defines "Off The Clock Work"
California’s wage and hour law defines off-the-clock work as work that is performed by an employee without getting paid.
Common off-the-clock work practices employers use consist of:
- Working before a shift begins; like time given to prepare a restaurant for opening, arranging a workplace, or arranging safety equipment.
- Work after a shift ends; like cleaning up, storing equipment, or transferring equipment to another site.
- Clerical work such as staying behind and working to complete medical charts or paperwork.
- Redoing a project or correcting mistakes on a project requested by the employer.
- Work that is completed by an employee during their rest or meal break.
