California Supreme Court Gives Employers a Major Break

Seyfarth Shaw (04/12/12) Brandon R. McKelvey; Dana Peterson; Jeffrey A. Berman

The California Supreme Court has ruled in Brinker Restaurant Corp. v. Superior Court that companies are not obligated to ensure their employees take legally mandated lunch breaks. Companies must give their nonexempt workers 30-minute meal breaks, but do not need to ensure their workers actually stop working during the breaks. Companies must give a meal break no later than the end of the fifth hour of work and a second break no later than the end of the 10th hour of work.
