Unlike Federal law, labor laws California allows for "double-time" when your overtime hours reaches certain thresholds:

1) Every hour worked after 12 hours in a single workday.

2) Every hour worked after 8 hours in a seventh consecutive workday.

Your double-time rate is calcuated as "two times your regular rate of pay". For example, if your regular rate of pay is $20 per hour, your double time rate is $40 per hour.
