  • Working 10hr shift with only a 1/2 hour lunch?

    Just wondering my employer is having a rough patch financially.
    And now they have taken our breaks away. I wasn't sure if by law we are allowed a meal break and rest periods. I work a 10-12 hour graveyard shift where we stand and pack produce boxes. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

        Yes, both meal and rest breaks are required in California. I have included a link to the relevant Wage Order. Your employer is required to have this order posted at the work place in an area frequently visited by employees:
