The California Supreme Court issued it’s decision in the Brinker case (Brinker Restaurant Corporation v. Superior Court (Hohnbaum)) yesterday. The court held that employers are required to make a good faith effort to authorize and permit rest breaks in the middle of each work period, but that they may deviate from that where practically necessary. The court also held that employers must relieve employees of all duty during meal periods, but need not ensure that the employee does no work.
