Your Meal Break Rights

California provides employees expansive meal break rights, and employers often fail to provide their employees all of these meal break rights.

In California, you’re likely owed unpaid wages with regard to meal breaks if any of the following happened:

  • Your meal break was less than 30 minutes.
  • You didn’t get a meal break when you worked 6 or more hours.
  • You weren’t allowed to leave the premises during your meal break.
  • Your meal break wasn’t duty-free.
  • You worked more than 10 hours in a workday and didn’t get a second 30-minute meal break.

Every time your employer fails to provide you any of these meal break rights, you’re entitled to at least one hour of pay.
