According to the lawsuit papers, Linda made her former boy-toy Charlie Hill wax her yacht, dig a creek, fertilize acres of avocado trees, pull reeds from a lake and perform additional construction and landscaping tasks around Bollea’s Simi Valley, Calif., mansion.

The California Industrial Welfare Commission establishes minimum conditions of employment, including overtime pay, and rules governing whether individuals are exempt from overtime pay because of the professional, administrative, or executive nature of their employment.  California labor laws require overtime pay to be paid for all “nonexempt” employees after eight hours of work in one workday or 40 hours in one work-week, plus additional “premium” overtime pay for hours worked on the seventh consecutive day of work in any one work week.  California law is more favorable to employees than federal law under the Fair Labor Standards Act, which only requires overtime pay for nonexempt private sector employees who worked in excess of 40 hours per workweek. An employer who fails to provide an employee with a meal or rest period as required by an applicable IWC Wage Order is liable for paying each affected employee one hour’s pay each day the employee is not provided the appropriate meal or rest period. California labor laws require employers to provide unpaid lunch and meal periods for nonexempt employees.
