Can My Employer Only Give Me Rest Breaks to Use the Restroom?

Can my employer only give me rest breaks to use the restroom

The question is whether your employer can only give you rest breaks to use to use the bathroom.

The answer…

No, this is not legal.

In California, employers must follow certain guidelines for meal periods and rest breaks. If you work more than five hours in a shift, your employer must give you at least 30 minutes of time off for a meal period.

But, your employer must also give you at least one ten-minute rest break for every four hours that you work (or major fraction of four hours that you work).

Unlike meal periods, rest breaks must be paid by your employer.
