Webinar Provides Clarity to California’s Precise Rules for Meal, Rest Breaks

Recorded Webinar Now Available

The California Chamber of Commerce is offering a webinar that provides clarity to meal and rest break requirements. In “Like Clockwork – California’s Precise Rules for Meal and Rest Breaks,” the CalChamber’s legal experts will cover California’s meal and rest break laws in detail, including steps to protect your company from liability.

Since meal and rest break compliance is a misunderstood and highly litigated area of law, employers need to understand the rules. This includes providing hourly workers with opportunities to take their breaks and doing everything you can to communicate what’s required and when.

“Meal breaks have nothing to do with eating lunch. They’re about providing 30 minutes of off-the-clock, duty-free time within 4 hours and 59 minutes from the start of a workday,” says Erika Frank, CalChamber executive vice president and general counsel.
