California child care employers:

Did you know that California labor law requires that day care workers be paid at least twice per month? You can provide paychecks more often than that (weekly, for example), but not less than two times in every month.

Some child care providers pay their employees once a month, but this is not allowed for typical day care workers.

Monthly checks are allowed only for workers classified as executive, administrative, or professional employees. If you hire credentialed teachers, you may be able to pay monthly, according to the professional exemption specified by the California Division of Labor Standards Enforcement (DLSE).
