When is overtime due?

For covered, nonexempt employees, state law requires overtime pay at a rate of not less than one and one‐half times an employee’s regular rate of pay after 40 hours of work in a week of seven days. Some exceptions to the 40 hours per week standard apply under special circumstances to police officers and firefighters employed by public agencies and to employees of hospitals and nursing homes. 

What are Registered Apprenticeships?

Registered Apprenticeships are innovative work-based learning and post-secondary earn-and-learn models that meet national standards for registration with the U.S. Department of Labor (or federally recognized State Apprenticeship Offices).

What do I receive upon completion of a Registered Apprenticeship program?

 After completion of an apprenticeship program, the apprentice earns a nationally recognized credential from the Department of Workforce Solutions Apprenticeship Office (in cooperation with the U.S. Department of Labor Office of Apprenticeship) that is portable and stackable. Additionally, an apprentice, along with earning a paycheck throughout the apprenticeship, is also elevated to journeyworker status that leads to increased pay and upward career opportunities.

Is a Registered Apprenticeship a Job?

Yes, apprentices start working from day one with incremental wage increases as they become more proficient. The average starting wage for an apprentice is approximately $15.28 per hour.
