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.
"Strauss & Strauss represented me in several cases against a former employer. They were taking on a Fortune 500 company that employed some of the world's biggest law firms. Michael Strauss and Andrew Ellison beat them every time."Stephen Craig
