School teachers often work long hour, and are generally exemption from overtime pay under California law. However, public school teachers often enjoy high salaries and outstanding benefits. The same is not always true, however, for private school teachers. California law currently allows private school teachers to make as little as $800 per week (double the minimum wage) and still be required to work longer hours of unpaid overtime.
AB 2230 would suspend that earnings standard until July 1, 2017. On and after that date, the bill would prescribe a revised earnings standard for exemption from the overtime provisions described above that would require the employee to earn no less than the lowest salary offered by any school district or the equivalent of no less than 70% of the lowest schedule salary offered by the school district or county in which the private elementary or secondary institution is located, as specified.
