Missed Meal & Rest Break Claims

Under California law, employees receive regular rest and meal breaks, depending on the lengths of their shifts. Employees are owed unpaid 30-minute meal breaks in any shift over five hours, as well as an unpaid 10-minute rest break for every four hours worked.

A class action wage/hour lawsuit in California is a lawsuit in which a large group of employees with the same grievance against their employer sue their employer as a group.

Private Attorneys Act Claims

California allows employees to sue employers as “private attorneys general,” or sue on behalf of the state for any Labor Code violations. This may be beneficial if you were not paid on designated paydays at least twice a month, and did not receive overtime or correct wages. However, if an employee files as a private attorney general, 75% of the funds collected will go to the state.
