Missing Meal and Rest Breaks
Did You Miss Your Meal or Break Again?
Sure, we all work through lunch or miss our breaks sometime. When your employer makes it clear that it’s part of their “unofficial” performance policy, though, they are breaking the law.
Many employers think that a salaried employee can (and should) work through lunch or other breaks. Under California law, though, salaried workers (just like hourly employees) are entitled to eat lunch and take breaks during their workday.
