Meal and Rest Break Printable Sign

January 25, 2023 999

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.
