Question: A California employee worked four hours of overtime during the last payroll period; when must the overtime wages be paid?

Answer: Payment of overtime wages earned in one payroll period must be paid no later than the payday for the next regular payroll period. Only payment of the overtime wages may be delayed until the next payday, not straight time wages.
