    I will include the pointers to the actual CA rules. The caution is that you are thowing around the terms "hourly" and "salaried" as if they mean something. CA looks instead at whether then employee is Non-Exempt or Exempt. All Non-Exempt whether they are paid by hourly, salaried or some other basis are on one set of rules. Exempt employees however tend to be generally not covered by the CA lunch and break rules.

    Breaks and Lunch California

    CA has unusual laws so thought I would ask about both hourly and salaried employees, we have both. Let's say they work an 8 hour day; are we required to give them 2 15 minute breaks and a 30 minute lunch break? Does that time come out of their 8 hours? In other words are they ending up then really working 7 hours and getting paid for 8? Or do we just make the breaks available and deduct that time from the hourly workers wages? Thank you!!
