Reporting Time/Show Up/On-Call/Call-In Pay in California CASE ALERT: Herrera v. Zumiez, Inc., --- F.3d --- (9th Cir. March 19, 2020)

California's Wage Orders require "reporting time pay." This means that if an employer requires an employee to "report" for work on an employee's usual or scheduled day, and then the employer fails to put the employee to work, the employee is owed at least 2 hours and possibly 4 hours at the employee's "regular rate of pay." See IWC Wage Order 7-2001, ยง 5(A) ("Each workday an employee is required to report for work and does report, but is not put to work or is furnished less than half said employee's usual or scheduled day's work, the employee shall be paid for half the usual or scheduled day's work, but in no event for less than two (2) hours nor more than four (4) hours, at the employee's regular rate of pay, which shall not be less than the minimum wage.")
