SECOND 30-MINUTE MEAL BREAK REQUIREMENTS IN CALIFORNIA
In California, employers must provide a second meal break of no fewer than 30 minutes for all workdays on which an employee works more than 10 hours. The second meal break must be provided no later than the end of an employee’s 10th hour of work.
An employee can waive the second meal period only if all of the following conditions are met:
– The total hours worked on that workday are not more than 12.
– You and the employee mutually consent.
– The first meal break of the workday was not waived.
