I always use plain English, with no sugarcoating, no B.S. lawyer talk, and no double talk-just old fashioned, unsweetened, unvarnished truth-just the way that I would want it.” -Bill Turley

Drivers in California

While most truck drivers in California know that they have some employee protections under federal wage-and-hour laws, many don’t realize that their employers must also adhere to the state’s specific wage-and-hour laws, which can vary in significant ways.

In wage matters, trucking and delievery companies are required to follow stricter California laws that favor vulnerable employees, and employees have the right to hold the company responsible for their unpaid wages under California law—even if the company meets the lesser requirements of federal law. For California truck drivers, this means that they essentially have extra protection when it comes to your employment rights.

Truck Drivers in California Are Protected by the State’s Tough Wage-and-Hour Laws

Labor laws can vary from state to state, and California has some of the best in the nation. These laws are generally made specifically to protect workers in vulnerable industries, and the rules generally add higher standards that benefit California workers. For truckers, Wage Order #9, which adds additional rules for employee rest and meal breaks, is a great example of how these laws can add extra protection for you. Trucking-industry employers that ignore these strict laws and regulations are essentially stealing your wages. But you can take action to recover the unpaid wages you are owed.
