Meal & Rest Break Violation Lawyers – Protection Law Group

Failure to provide non-exempt (wage earners) employees proper meal and rest breaks as required by California Law may result in substantial fines and penalties, including compensation for an additional two hours for missed breaks unless the law provides otherwise based on the employee’s job and duties. While employees may voluntarily choose to forego rest breaks, uninterrupted meal breaks are mandatory. Non-exempt employees are entitled to the following paid meal & rest breaks: One 30 minute meal break for every 5 hour work segment Two 30 minute meal breaks for all shifts worked in excess of 10 hours per day One 10 minute rest break for every 4 hour work shift Two 10 minute rest breaks for every 6-10 hour work shift Three 10 minute rest breaks for every 10-14 hour work shift One 30 minute meal break and two 10 minute rest breaks during an 8 hour work shift For employees who are paid via commission or piecemeal, they must be compensated for meal and rest breaks based either on their average hourly rate or the current minimum wage – whichever is higher. While employees are entitled to uninterrupted breaks, their employer cannot control what they do during these breaks and some may choose to work through their lunch or dinner breaks. If an employee chooses to work through their meal break, their employer is not responsible for the time worked unless they were aware that their employee was working. In this instance, the employer is only required to pay wages for the actual amount of time worked. However, there are certain jobs wherein it is not always possible to take an uninterrupted meal break. These situations generally require employees to remain on call throughout the work day and either carry walkie talkies or other two-way communication devices. Under these circumstances, employees are entitled to an extra hour of pay. For example, tow truck drivers fall under this category because they have to be able to respond to calls from a radio.  Other employees who have to answer a phone, radio or intercom may not be receiving their breaks.
