  • CA- couple questions

    I work for a company the requires a lot of overtime. I am aware that I am not eligable for comp time or overtime pay as a salaried employee, however, is there a CA law that requires that they provide a meal if I work more than 10-12 hours a day?
    Also, if a bonus is verbally promised to me (and my department) and then is not given, is there any legal bind to that verbal promise?

    I am assuming by "salaried" you mean exempt, since salaried is merely a pay method. I suggest you contact your local office of the Division of Labor Standards Enforcement to inquire about meal periods. Although the law states that meal periods are required if the employee works six hours or more, the concept of "exempt employment" is that the employee works whatever hours are necessary to get the job done. It is possible that the meal/break periods required by law would not apply to exempt employees, but that is an interpretation I have not yet seen disseminated by the DLSE. Will you let us know what they tell you?
    I don't respond to Private Messages unless the moderator specifically refers you to me for that purpose. Thank you.
