California Computer Professional Overtime Requirement Clarified

On September 30, 2008, Governor Schwarzenegger signed into law a bill clarifying that salaried computer software professional employees who earn at least $75,000 a year are exempt from overtime compensation requirements.

Under the new law, hourly employees earning at least $36 an hour and salaried employees earning at least $75,000 a year are exempted from overtime compensation requirements, thus defining clear amounts for both hourly and salaried employees. This new requirement takes immediate effect.

There are important additional criteria for exempting these computer professionals; Baker & Hostetler have them here.
