Generally an employee must be given a meal period at least by the end of the fifth hour of work (no later than the beginning of the sixth). If the employee is working for longer than 10 hours they must also get a second meal period at least by the end of the tenth hour of work (no later than the start of the eleventh hour). These rules can be altered by certain waivers based on mutual consent, and apply differently to employees in the motion picture industry.
"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
