One of the more contentious HR management issues for employers is complying with California break laws. Staying informed is a first step to proper compliance, however.
Most employers are simply working to feed their own families and make an honest living. Yet it seems that labor law changes often make their work that much harder each year.
Employers continually deal with compliance issues and, with California break laws, rest periods and meals make compliance that much more challenging.
The California labor employment law protects the rights of California employees and this includes many new laws since 2014 that also protect new immigrants. In addition to protecting meal and rest breaks, the California labor code covers issues such as overtime pay, tip pooling laws, vacation laws and more.
