    I suggest you seek help, guidance, and direction regarding all payroll issues with those helpful folks in your employer's payroll department. Those great people know all there is, was, and what will be about their employee's payroll data.

    There are two possibilities here: Your OT was figured correctly, or your OT was figured incorrectly.

    If it was figured correctly, they will be able to explain to you why.

    If it was figured incorrectly, it needs to be brought to their attention so that they can fix it.

    CA OT law is different from every other state and I have not been responsible for payroll in California for over 20 years. With the information you provided I do not feel that I can accurately assess whether your OT was figured rightly or wrongly. Either way, you need to be speaking with whoever does your payroll.

    Your numbers don't add up. If you were paid for 7.5 hrs per day (8 hrs minus 30 minutes unpaid lunch) for 8 days and 11 hrs per day (12 hours minus 1 hour unpaid lunch), that adds up to a total of 115 hours, not 109 hours. I agree that you really should speak to whoever handles PR at your employer, but if you post back here with correct numbers, including what days you worked what hours, then I might be able to shed some light on this. I am familiar with CA overtime law...
