Employment Law Protecting You Against Unfair Labor Practices
Meal And Rest Periods
Protection for California Employees
If you are a California employee, you have certain rights to meal and rest breaks. In California, the state labor code requires employers to provide each employee with meal and rest periods at specified intervals. If you are a nonexempt employee (anyone who is not a professional, executive or administrator), you should receive a 30 minute, uninterrupted, duty-free meal break in each block of at least five hours worked, as well as a paid ten-minute break for every four-hour period.
If your employer has interfered with your right to paid meal and rest breaks, you may have a cause of action against your employer. Many employees throughout the U.S. have filed large class action lawsuits as well as individual lawsuits against employers for imposing harsh working conditions on employees.
If your employer has used intimidation, overly burdensome work schedules, or other inappropriate means to deny your right to meal and rest breaks, you may have legal ground for a civil lawsuit. To learn more about your rights, we encourage you to contact an attorney at one of our three office locations.
