Meal and Rest Break Violations

When it comes to meal and rest intervals, many employees are uninformed of their rights. If you work more than 5 hours in a workday, you are entitled to at least a 30-minute meal break under California law (which is significantly more favorable to employees than federal labor law). A second lunch period must be supplied no later than the conclusion of the employee's tenth hour of work when an employee works for more than 10 hours.

Employees must be released of all responsibilities for the duration of the 30-minute meal hour and must be allowed to leave the workplace. Employees may not be prevented or discouraged from taking meal or rest breaks by their employer. By pressing employees to fulfil their jobs in ways that omit breaks, employers cannot undercut the meal and breach the law (e.g through a scheduling policy that makes breaks very impractical).

Employers and workers can agree to a "on duty" lunch period under extremely restricted situations. Only when the nature of the work precludes the employee from being freed of all duties and when an on-the-job meal period is agreed to in writing between the employer and the employee will on-duty meal periods be authorized.

Asked Any Questions

Employees are protected by federal and state legislation. Employees who believe they have been subjected to workplace sexual harassment or discrimination may consult an employment lawsuit attorney. A lawyer can assess the situation and explain the employee’s choices. In the interim, workers should maintain precise records of any workplace harassment they encounter.

California law guarantees food and rest periods. Employees who believe they are not getting the breaks they are entitled to can see an employment dispute attorney. A lawyer may assess the matter and advise the employee on his or her choices, which may include suing. A potential claimant should read the company’s employment regulations and maintain precise records of their hours worked and breaks taken.
