  • Meal and Break Periods California

    Some examples of an employees being disuaded from taking an uninterrupted meal break are listed here:

    The company requires and employee to always wear a company cell phone or communication device so that co-workers or management can contact the employee regardless of meal periods being taken and at all times during the employees shift.

    Another example is a guard at a guard gate, wherein the guard receives no relief to take an uninterrupted break and must eat while allowing cars to pass or checking cars in at the gate of a gated community.

    In these instances, depending on the circumstances, these employees may be entitled to one hours wage for each break missed.
