En Espanol

You have the right to be paid for your work!

  • The right to receive at least the minimum wage for each hour of work—$7.25 per hour.
  • The right to receive overtime pay—time and a half for each hour over 40 hours worked in a week.
  • The right to be paid for your work regardless of immigration status.
  • If your employer terminates your employment, the right to receive your final pay within 24 hours.

Exceptions

  • Some workers—usually salaried or professional workers—are exempt from overtime pay requirements.
  • Employers are not required by law to provide breaks or lunch periods for adult employees. However, employers are required to provide breaks for workers under the age of 18.
  • Employers are not required to provide paid vacation, holidays, sick leave or severance pay.
