Missed Meal And Rest Break Pay
Every employee in California is entitled to meal breaks and rest breaks, and many are provided vacation and sick time benefits as well.

Meal And Rest Breaks
California law protects meal and rest breaks for employees. In California, the practice of having an employee waive a meal break or requiring an employee to take a break at the beginning or end of a shift is prohibited. For more information about California law regarding meal breaks, contact an attorney at Gigliotti & Gigliotti, LLP today.
Under California law, vacation benefits once earned cannot be taken away. So-called use it or lose it policies are illegal in California. Where company policies provide for vacation pay for employees, those employees cannot be denied vacation benefits. If an employee is leaving the place of employment, all earned vacation pay must be paid in accordance with company policy.
