"The Shifting Sands of Meal and Rest Break Requirements Afford Employers Little Rest"
In light of the California Supreme Court’s landmark decision in Brinker Restaurant Corporation v. Superior Court, what policies should employers adopt to minimize their exposure to wage claims and class action suits, for meal and rest break violations?
This ongoing seminar series is being conducted by veteran Petaluma labor & employment attorney, Jay Putnam. Putnam, has advised employers exclusively, in labor matters for over 37 years. He hopes to provide local business owners and managers with a solid, working understanding of California labor law, as a means of helping them avoid the often crippling cost and disruption caused by lawsuits resulting from a misunderstanding of applicable legal requirements.
Members are encouraged to bring their questions. Putnam says he intends to conduct the seminars as "informal, working sessions, where people can bring their lunch and their questions and leave each month with important information that will immediately improve their business operations.
