Workers are entitled to meal and rest breaks. Employers try to force employees to skip breaks through various means and they will not provide compensation for missed breaks. Most workers are afraid of consequences if they do not skip breaks.
California Meal and Rest Breaks
California requires non-exempt workers are entitled to a paid rest period of 15 minutes per 3.5 hours worked.
Meal breaks are uninterrupted unpaid 30-minute periods of time when the employee does not have any work duties, such as monitoring a walkie-talkie or staying on the premises. The employer must over one meal break for every 8 hours worked no later than 5 hours after the start period.
