In an interview with SHRM, Anet Drapalski explains how AB 2932 would impact employers across California if passed. The bill, in it’s current form, would require businesses with more than 500 employees to pay time-and-a-half when employees work beyond eight hours in a day or 32 hours in a workweek.
Under the bill, nonexempt employees would need to be paid the same amount for 32 hours as they were being paid for 40. "This means approximately a 20 percent increase in wages, not accounting for the additional overtime wages employers will have to pay if they need their employees to work 40 hours in a workweek," Anet explained.
"Employers will also have to do an audit of their employment policies, including sick-leave accrual policies, to ensure they are compliant with the law," she said.
