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. Although these breaks are unpaid, California employers will have to compensate employees if they are not provided—up to one hour of pay per meal break or rest break violation.
