Would like some clarification on this. I heard that the California Labor Law states something to this effect:
An Employer must schedule an employee at least 8 hours between two shifts, unless the employee waives this right or agrees otherwise.For example, if an employer has you working until 3:00 AM, and schedules you to be back at 8:00 AM the following morning (only a 5 hour difference), the employer cannot do this, or at minimum cannot hold the employee accountable for not abiding by this schedule, as there is not an 8 hour window here. The soonest the employer could ask the employee to come in would be 11:00 AM.
Can anyone clarify this and perhaps site the CA labor code that supports it?
