California law is extremely detailed and protective of meal time and break time for employees. The law also prohibits the practice of having an employee waive the meal break or an employer's requirement that the employee take a break at the beginning or end of a shift. There are situations in which a meal break is not required, but this occurs during days where the work day is less than eight hours on a regular basis.

When meeting with attorney Geoff Lyon, he can use his over 15 years of experience to assess your case. Mr. Lyon is fluent in the language of the state and federal laws that govern the ways in which employers are obligated to compensate employees for meals and breaks. He can advise you of your rights and options, and the likelihood that your claim will have enough merit to stand up in court.
