Your charter school has hired the right employees. Now how do you pay them? The next step is to understand the complexities surrounding California wage and hour laws and how to properly pay employees. We will review the complex California labor laws including the various wage orders issued by the California Industrial Welfare Commission, and continue with a review of the definitions of workday, workweek and the state and local jurisdiction minimum wage regulations. We will explain the duties and responsibilities of an employer to maintain adequate and accurate timekeeping records. We will discuss the difference between an employee and an independent contractor, and how to handle volunteers and interns. We will review all required information which needs to be on an employee's wage earning statement (paystub), including an explanation of permissible wage deductions. And last, we will do a brief overview of when an employee needs to receive a final paycheck.
