California Meal and Rest Breaks: What You Dont Know Can Cost You

November 8 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EST


California statutes pertaining to meal and rest periods for non-exempt employees are one of the more confusing topics in today’s business environment.

This course is designed to provide you with a practical foundation for understanding the law. It includes guidelines for properly creating and administering your own meal and rest period policy. Or, if your company already has its own policy, then this information can help you to review your existing policy as well as the procedures and practices in “real life” daily operations.

By the end of the course, you will be informed about the laws so that you will be better equipped to assist your company in being California-compliant with meal and rest periods.


Meal and rest breaks laws continue to confound California employers with hourly-paid employees. Without a solid understanding of these specific requirements, your policies and procedures for your non-exempt employees can pose a substantial financial risk to your business.

Employers, managers, supervisors, and human resources professionals should have a sound understanding of these laws so that they can communicate the legal requirements to their hourly-paid employees. They also need to be well-versed to provide non-exempt employees with the opportunities to take their entitled meal and rest periods.

By attending this training, employers and their leaders will have a working knowledge of California meal and break period requirements and help their companies comply with the law.
