Description:

The state supreme court’s landmark ruling in Brinker Restaurant Corp. has been around for several years now, but employee meal and break lawsuits continue to plague California employers.

Consider the recent revival of a class action case, Alberts v. Aurora Behavioral Health Care, where employees claimed their employer was purposely understaffed, effectively denying them the chance to take their legally mandated breaks. An appeals court has allowed the lawsuit to continue, and the employer could be on the hook for costly damages.

Similarly, a $2 million verdict has been handed down in a case where Apple workers in California claimed they weren’t provided timely meal breaks.

If challenged by the Divisions of Labor Standards Enforcement (DLSE) or a judge/jury, would your policies and practices regarding meal and rest breaks show compliance? To avoid legal fallout, you should be able to correctly answer questions such as:

  • What if the employee doesn’t take the break offered?
  • What constitutes an off-duty meal break?
  • When must rest breaks be offered, and to whom?
  • Can an employee waive his or her meal break?
  • Can an employee take an on-duty meal break?
  • Can meal and rest breaks be moved or “clumped” within a shift if the employee or employer would prefer that?
Join us for answers to these questions and more. Our presenter, a skilled California-based employment attorney, will explain how to ensure that your meal and break policies and practices are in compliance with California law.

You’ll learn:
  • Fundamentals of employee breaks in California, including the difference between a meal break and rest break, and your basic compliance obligations for each
  • “Break Math” to master—and how to calculate when breaks must be offered, and how “major fractions” work
  • Key takeaways from recent California meal and break lawsuits
  • Techniques to help managers better communicate with employees about breaks, and how to make sure they understand one another—and comply with the law
  • 4 conditions that make a meal break officially off-duty
  • Specific consequences of failing to offer meal and rest breaks in California
  • Systems for better managing break times to make sure everyone is getting what they need smoothly and accurately
  • When to ask for waivers
  • And much more!
In just 90 minutes, you'll gain an excellent working knowledge of one of the trickiest areas of California wage and hour law.

About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:

Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.

The live versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back at work immediately after the session ends!

And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous times and to share it with others in your office.

Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
