Learn what constitutes a meal or rest break and your obligations as an Employer under California’s employee break laws. Understand the requirements and the possible violations and penalties associated with CA meal and rest break compliance.


  • Employer obligations for meal and rest breaks
  • What constitutes a meal/rest break?
  • No on-call rest breaks (December 2016 ruling)
  • Waiver provisions
  • Premium pay for meal and/or rest break violations

  • Best practices to avoid compliance trouble


Under California law (which is much more generous to employees than federal law), if you are a non-exempt worker, you are entitled to meal and rest breaks: a 30-minute meal break if you work more than 5 hours in a workday, and 10 minutes breaks for every 4 hours you work. There are other requirements though.

Meal and rest break compliance continues to be the source of a great deal of litigation for California employers. Understanding California’s meal and rest breaks requirements is extremely important. To comply with these rules, employers must do everything possible to communicate the legal requirements of California’s employee break laws to nonexempt workers and provide them opportunities to take meal and rest breaks.
