  • CA: Working thorugh Lunch Break

    If an employer schedules a meeting durding our scheduled lunch break, are we paid for that time? My employer did provide lunch to us. We ate during our business meeting. I was told this time was not paid and to enter that time as I would have normally if I took mty lunch. Is this correct? I'am based out in CA.

    thanks

    Are you exempt or non-exempt?
    The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.

        Yes the meeting was mandatory. We did get three ten minute breaks from a period of 9am to 4pm

              Then you must be paid for it. You were not relieved of your job responsibilities, that responsibility being a mandatory meeting.

              If your employer won't fix this, you can file a claim for unpaid wages with the Division of Labor Standards Enforcement.
