YOU MAY BE ENTITLED TO RECOVERY PERIODS TO REST

Lunch Break

Labor Code section 226.7 prohibits employers from requiring employees to work during any meal, rest, or recovery period. The law also requires employers to pay an additional hour of pay at the employee’s regular rate of pay for each workday a meal, rest, or recovery period is missed.

Due to the growing concerns that employers were not sure if rest or recovery periods need to be paid, in 2013, the California Legislature added the language regarding “recovery periods” to specificy that rest or recovery periods required under California law shall be counted as hours worked for which there will be no deduction from wages. Thus, recovery periods count as hours worked the same way working during rest periods count as hours worked.
