The California Supreme Court will issue its decision tomorrow in the long-awaited meal and rest period case of Brinker Restaurant Corp. v. Superior Court.  The Court is expected to decide whether employers must ensure that employees actually take meal periods, or whether it is sufficient to just make meal periods available.  The Court also is expected to provide some guidance regarding the timing of meal periods, and perhaps also of rest periods.  Regardless of how the Court rules, the decision will have far-reaching implications for California employers and employees. 

Seyfarth Shaw will host a webinar on Wednesday, April 18 at 12:00 p.m. PT to discuss the Brinker decision and its implications.   

  • The effect of Brinker on employer policies and practices related to meal periods and rest breaks, and practical tips for revising them
  • The impact of 6-hour, 8-hour, 10-hour, and 12-hour workdays on the timing of meal periods
  • Meal period waivers and on-duty meal period agreements after Brinker
  • Impact of Brinker on class certification in wage-and-hour cases
