                                                California Law                                             

All California employees are entitled to the state’s current minimum wage, proper overtime, breaks and meal periods during their works days.  Failure to provide an employee their rights to rest time and/or pay is absolutely unacceptable and can result in a serious lawsuit.  Located in Los Angeles, California, Webb & Ord lawyers have been consistently providing clients with justice and fulfillment through the laws by which they reside under, holding the responsible parties accountable for their advocated wrongdoings.                                                                                                                      

Meal Periods

If an employee is scheduled to work more than a five hour work day, he or she is required to receive a meal period not less than a half hour.  The only exception is if the total work day in hours is not more than six hours, only then can the meal period be exempt with recorded consent from both the employer and employee in order to preserve that agreement on that particular work day.                                                            

Rest Periods

For each four-hour work period throughout the duration of a single work day, employees are entitled to one consecutive ten minute break/rest period.  Under the authority of certain employers, an employee will sometimes become unjustly deprived of his or her rest period due the manipulated conditions of being scheduled to work alone whereas it can be impossible to stop working at any given moment.  This is in no way acceptable and any employee under these circumstances should actively pursue their rights under the California employee laws through an experienced attorney.
