OVERVIEW

California statutes pertaining to meal and rest periods for non-exempt employees is one of the more confusing topics in today’s business environment.

This course is designed to provide you with a practical foundation for understanding the law. It includes guidelines for how to properly create and administer your own meal and rest period policy. Or, if your company already has its own policy, then this information can help you review your existing policy as well as the procedures and practices in “real life” daily operations.

By the end of the course, you will be informed about the California employment law so that you will be better-equipped to assist your company in being California-compliant with meal and rest periods.
