Los Angeles Lawyers For Cases Involving Employment Breaks

Employee Rights Litigation For Los Angeles County And The San Fernando Valley

Under California state law, employers are required to allow their non-exempt (hourly) and exempt (salaried) workers reasonable breaks at designated times throughout the work shift. These periods typically include paid 10- or 15-minute breaks, as well as at least one-half hour for meals, for which the employee may be required to punch off the pay clock.

  • You are required to remove (doff) required work equipment after you punch out for your lunch break or put on (don) equipment before punching back in for work.
  • Your employer requires you to work through your regularly scheduled break, but promises to "make it up to you" later.
