At the Leichter Law Firm, APC, Aryeh Leichter, the Los Angeles employment law attorney, knows apartment managers in California are protected by various employment laws and regulations to ensure fair treatment and working conditions.

Apartment managers and employers must stay informed about these regulations and ensure compliance to avoid legal issues and protect employees’ rights.

California Employment Law: Key Regulations Affecting Apartment Managers

Apartment Managers: Equal Rights, Equal Protection

The following are some fundamental rules that affect apartment managers throughout the state that can provide further guidance and assistance in navigating these regulations:

Apartment managers must be paid at least the minimum wage set by California law, including the wage that applies to the city or county, which may differ from the state’s minimum wage requirements. They are also entitled to overtime pay for hours worked beyond 8 hours in a workday or 40 hours in a workweek unless exempt under certain circumstances.

California law requires employers to provide employees with meal and rest breaks based on the hours worked. Apartment managers are entitled to a 30-minute meal break if they work more than 5 hours a day and must be provided a 10-minute rest break for every 4 hours worked.

Apartment managers are protected by California’s anti-discrimination laws, which prohibit discrimination based on protected characteristics such as race, gender, age, disability, and sexual orientation. Employers are also required to provide “reasonable accommodations,” which are modifications or adjustments to the work environment that enable employees with disabilities to perform their job duties unless it would cause undue hardship for the employer.

  • Family and Medical Leave

Apartment managers may be eligible for protected leave under the California Family Rights Act (CFRA) or the federal Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) for qualifying reasons, such as the birth or adoption of a child or caring for a seriously ill family member.

Every onsite property manager in California is an employee and cannot—by law—be classified as an independent contractor.
