California overtime laws: longer hours, fewer days?
I have a question about California overtime law. My boss and i want me to work over 8 hours a day for fewer days a week. The total hours will be well under 40 a week. The payroll people say that I must be paid overtime for the time over 8 hours per day that I work. Is this true or is there something I can sumbmit to show that I want to work longer hours for fewer days and that I am not being abused?

Yes, CA law requires that you be paid overtime for over 8 hours. You cannot waive your overtime. http://www.dir.ca.gov/dlse/FAQ_Overtime.htm
