Labor and Employment Law News


Posted on: Jul 29, 2014

Nearly 21,000 retail employees and workers at Apple's California corporate headquarters have taken the company to task over what they claim are illegal working conditions. The employees say Apple neglects to provide them with timely meal and rest breaks, and at times, denies them any breaks at all.

Those working conditions go against the state's law. In California, employers must offer a 30-minute meal break within the first five hours of an employee's day. They must also provide a 10-minute rest break every four hours and a second rest break for shifts between six and 10 hours.
