Mid-Wilshire Meal and Rest Break Lawyer

California law requires employers to provide a 30 minute off-duty meal period break to non-exempt employees who work more than five hours in a day.  The employee must be completely relieved of all duties during this break and outside the employer’s control. 

California employers must also provide a 10 minute rest break for every four hours an employee works.  The rest break must be as close to the middle of the four hour period as possible.

An employer must pay a penalty of one hour’s wages for each meal period or rest break the employer causes an employee to miss.  In addition, the employer may owe the employee additional wages and overtime for the time the employee worked during his or her meal period break.
