Employee Remedies For Denied Meal Periods

Employee Remedies for Denied Meal Periods

If you are a non-exempt employee and are not provided a 30-minute, off-duty meal period by your employer, you should be paid for one hour at your regular rate as compensation (known as meal period premium pay) for every day your meal period is denied. If your employer does not provide a meal period or pay the additional hour’s pay as compensation you may file a wage claim with the Labor Commissioner or seek the meal period premium pay in a civil lawsuit against your employer.
