Brinker on Employment Law Breaks

On Thursday the California Supreme Court made a ruling in the much anticipated Brinker case. The case primarily involved labor law breaks at work in California.

The employees argued that the employer violated California labor laws by failing to make sure that the employees in fact took a 30 minute meal break. However, the court disagreed, ruling that all the employer is required to do under meal and rest break laws is make sure that the employees have the opportunity to take the break.
