You get CA overtime even if you're working in CA temporarily, and resident in another state.

CA Supreme Court  today ruled a different rule would encourage CA employers to import labor from "no overtime" states.  This case is a very vivid example of a decision following local economic concerns before pure legal analysis.  Still, the decision seems best for CA employees and avoids a two tied wage law.  Sullivan v. Oracle 2011 DJDAR 9891.  Unanimous decision.
