Should a weekly time sheet include a lunch break according to California law?


Answer by  patti (29325)

Work day breaks are a matter of federal, not state, law. An eight-hour day, e. g. , requires one 30 and two 15 minute breaks. Time sheet documentation is not a factor.

A weekly time sheet doesn't need to include a lunch break, but you are required to take a lunch break if working 6 hours or more.

According to the California labor laws, if you are expected to be available to work during your lunch break, the time should be included in your hours. If you are not expected to do so, they do not have to pay you. It all depends on the type of job you have.

Legally your employer has to give you a break for every so long you work. You should get a lunch break. It doesn't have to be on your time sheet.
