When Meal Break And Rest Periods Are Denied
California’s meal break and rest period laws can be confusing to employers and employees alike. Most parties understand that breaks and rest periods are mandatory under many circumstances, but confusion can occur in a variety of circumstances:
- When work stints exceed five hours (“Do I get one break or two?”)
- When work stints exceed 10 hours (“Do I get more than one lunch break?”)
- When written agreements are allowed to supersede legal guidelines (“Under what circumstances can I ask my employee(s) to waive rights to a break in writing?”)
