Under the California state law, an employer is required to provide 30- minutes employment law lunch breaks once the employee has worked for 5 hours. When the employee’s workday is completed in 6 hours or less, the employee may consent to “give up” their right to a meal break. If the employee works a 10-hour day, he or she is entitled to a second 30-minute unpaid meal break. Where the entire workday does not exceed 12 hours, then the employee may choose to give up the second meal break. That being said, it must be noted that the second break may only be waived if the employee took the first break. Therefore, an employee may not waive both breaks in one day. Depending on the nature of the job, if an employee is unable to take a break from all their duties, the employer is required to provide an on-duty meal period. Such meal periods must be paid, and the employee must agree to an on-duty break in writing.
“A survey conducted shows that many employers perform criminal background checks when hiring for at least some positions. It is also essential for employers to ask about criminal history on the job application, often ending the process for many applicants before its onset. Luckily, candidates with criminal records have some strong protection under the state law of California,” added the company spokesperson.
Employees excluded from standard employee lunch breaks, then the law says that these must be included in administrative, executive, managerial, or professional capacities. For an employee to be considered they must meet the requirements of; spending more than one half of their work time performing intellectual, managerial or creative work, they must customarily and regularly exercise discretion and independent judgment in performing their duties and earn a monthly salary that is equivalent to at least twice the California minimum wage for full-time employment.
