Beverly Hills, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/10/2019 -- Counsel One P.C is a California-based law company with years of experience in assisting their clients to achieve maximum compensation in cases concerning their employment. The company has a proven track record of successfully getting compensation for its clients. The firm is backed by 15 years of experience and has won millions in remuneration for their customers, achieving recognition for their superior representation in the process. The firm's California employment law lawyers handle most cases on a contingency basis. That means that customers don't pay until they recover compensations for the clients.
Under the California state law, the employer is required to offer 30-minute employee lunch breaks once after working for 5 hours," explained the company spokesperson. "When the employees' workdays are completed within 6 hours or less, the employee may consent to "give up" their right to a meal break. If the employee works a 10-hour day, he or she is entitled a second 30-minute unpaid meal break. Where the entire workday does not exceed 12 hours, then the employee may choose to give up the second meal break. That being said, it must be noted that the second break may only be waived if the employee took the first break. Therefore, an employee may not waive both breaks in one day. Depending on the nature of the job, if an employee is unable to take a break from all their duties, the employer is required to provide an on-duty meal period. Such meal periods must be paid, and the employee must agree to an on-duty break in writing."
Individuals can contact Counsel One attorneys for free consultations regarding employees' unpaid lunch breaks. If the clients are working on an hourly basis, their employer may require them to clock out for their meal break, but he may give them tasks to work on while they are off the clock. Besides being a violation of law itself, this might lead to them working for over 40 hours per week without being paid. In this case, the employees will be entitled to unpaid overtime wages.
The company spokesperson said, "There is no doubt that Los Angeles is among the most powerful and influential cities in the entire United States for various reasons. To begin with, Los Angeles is a global cultural and fashion hub, mostly considering the film industry is worth billions of dollars. Of course, with a big business often means significant litigation. That is why, when it comes to contract lawyers in Los Angeles, clients want to ensure they have the best legal representation. That is where Counsel One P. C can make sure that our clients are protected."
The company lawyers have vast experience in their practice areas, which include wage and hour matters, wrongful termination, consumer protections, false advertising, and discrimination.
