Meal and Rest Break Requirements Clarified Under the Brinker Ruling

Meal and rest period violations have increasingly become a major player in employee claims and class action lawsuits, resulting in large awards of premium wages and penalties.

Finally, the California Supreme Court in Brinker Restaurant vs. Superior Court of San Diego answers outstanding questions on the employer’s duties in providing and timing of meal and rest periods. In addition to addressing meal and rest period requirements, the Brinker decision provides guidance regarding the circumstances where class actions are applicable in common wage and hour claims.

Dawn Ross and Valorie Bader will discuss the Brinker holding with practical applications of common workplace scenarios and the implications on future claims or litigation.
