Don't Let Your Employer Deny You Rest Breaks!
Your Rest Break Rights
In California, if you work between four and six hours in a day, you’re entitled to a paid 10-minute rest break, and if you work between six and ten hours in a day, you’re entitled to a second 10-minute rest break.
Just like meal breaks, California law requires rest breaks to be duty-free, which means you don’t have to do any work during your rest breaks and you’re free to leave the premises.
Every time you don’t get a rest break or your rest break is short or your rest break is interrupted or it’s not duty-free or you’re not free to leave the premises, you’re entitled to at least one hour of pay.
