This article reviews the upcoming changes to overtime in 2022. It also includes instructions for setting up overtime calculations in your Datatech Software.
Are you ready?
Now is the time to review the California Ag Overtime Laws for 2022 and software tools for overtime calculations.
The beginning of 2022 will be the last phase-in of overtime thresholds that began in 2019 for employers with 26 or more employees.
Employers with 26 or more employees are required to pay overtime after an employee has worked 8 hours in a day and 40 hours in a workweek. They are also required to pay double-time after an employee has worked 12 hours in a day.
Phase-In of Overtime Rules

Get Automatic Overtime Calculations
It can be hard to manually calculate and track overtime pay, which is why Datatech’s software is available to do it for you. We know that in the Ag industry, you may not be paying just one hourly rate. When employees are paid more than one hourly rate, overtime must then be calculated on a weekly average rate method (Overtime Premium). Datatech Software has options to automatically calculate both Hourly and Overtime Premium methods of overtime pay.
