I am an employee of a nanny agency. They are responsible for paying me to be their nanny. Should I still get over time pay for anything over 40 hours even if it's with multiple families? The nanny agency schedules me and pays me but only pays overtime if

I am an employee of a nanny agency and they schedule me with multiple families. One family is full time and the other family is part time. Because I am an employee of the agency shouldn't I be paid over time for anything after 40 hours? I currently work on average 50 hours a week but only get 1-2 hours of over time because the other hours are with a different family.

Yes...you are owed overtime over 8 hours per day or 40 hours per week. Damages also include interest, various penalties and the employer will have to pay your attorney fees.

It is one employer. They owe you overtime based upon how many hours you work. However, there is a special Labor Code for nannies which is California Labor Code Section 1454. Overtime begins at 9 hours a day and 45 hours a week.
