Meal Breaks

Is your employer denying you meal breaks?

Pursuant to California law, employees must be provided with no less than a thirty-minute meal break when the work period is more than five hours.

The meal period shall be considered "on duty," counted as hours worked, and paid for at the employee's regular rate of pay, unless the employee is relieved of all duty during the entire thirty-minute meal period and is free to leave the employer's premises.

If your employer is not allowing you to take a meal break, there’s something you can do about the situation, call Kurtzhall Law.
