CA Supreme Court rules nonresidents should be paid overtime

Last month, the California Supreme Court ruled against Oracle in a lawsuit involving overtime pay paid to nonresident workers.  With the ruling, the Supreme Court declares that all nonresident workers in California are entitled to overtime pay from businesses in the state.

The ruling came out of a class-action overtime pay lawsuit filed against Oracle.  Employees from Arizona and Colorado filed suit against Oracle after they were not paid for time working overtime while training customers on their software in California.

In the court’s unanimous decision, Justice Kathryn Werdegar stated, “To permit nonresidents to work in California without the protection of our overtime law would completely sacrifice, as to those employees, the state’s important public policy goals of protecting health and safety and preventing the evils associated with overwork.”
