    Has anyone commented on the Post regarding the following: Social Security Administration, Social Security Disability Income and DOL SCSEP senior training program. Why is the SCSEP training program not included as one of the SSA Employment Networks for the disabled to train on??

    California Corporations can avoid paying some overtime hours to part-time employees who work less than 45 hours per week by starting work shifts 4 hours before midnight and ending after 9 hours the next day. This example shows how the employee works a straight 13 hour shift for regular wages because 4 hours is charged to the workday ending at midnight pm, and 9 hours is charged to the workday beginning 12 am to 9am, without violating the 16 hr workday. However during a regular 24 hour, 12am to midnight, workday the employee would legally be entitled to overtime wages for any hours worked over nine hours per shift. So in this example the employee gets cheated out of 4 hours of overtime wages.
