MY EMPLOYER IS NOT ALLOWING ME TO TAKE A MEAL PERIOD. WHAT CAN I DO?
In California, if your employer is not allowing you to take a meal period, you may have protected by the meal period requirements of the law.
If your employer fails to give you the required meal period, you are to be paid one hour of pay at your regular rate of compensation for each workday that the meal period is not provided.
If your employer fails to pay the additional one-hour’s pay, you may file a wage claim with the Division of Labor Standards Enforcement.
