If you want to reduce your risk of labor litigation, it’s important you understand California’s meal and rest break requirements.
With a busy patient schedule, compliance can be tricky but is required for all hourly employees. And remember, hygienists that are paid a “daily rate” are hourly employees, too!
This can be difficult for you as the employer because:
- You may not be aware of all the details of the law.
- Laws change and it’s hard to keep up.
- Employees don’t always remember to take their breaks.
If you fail to comply with these laws, it may leave you vulnerable and can potentially lead to a very expensive problem.
CDA has developed a downloadable sign that you can print and place in an area of your practice where employees are most likely to see it.
