The California Supreme Court issued its long-awaited decision in Brinker v. Superior Court (Hohnbaum) on April 12, 2012. This decision finally answered the much litigated question of what it means to "provide" a meal break under California law. The Court's decision also addressed issues surrounding when a second meal break is required, and clarified the rest break requirements of California law. Finally, the Supreme Court made it clear that despite some favorable changes, class action litigation on meal and rest break issues remains viable. What Brinker failed to address is exactly what changes employers with California employees need to make to their meal and rest break practices in order to minimize legal exposure. However, on May 16, 2012, Texas-based employers with California operations can get this information directly from CDF attorneys coming to Dallas to help explain the new meal and rest break landscape in California. During this complimentary seminar hosted by CDF Partners Brent Giddens, Mark Spring and Robin Largent, we will discuss the Brinker decision, how it impacts meal and rest break policies and practices going forward and what employers should do in its wake. The seminar is on May 16 from 3:30-5:00 p.m. (followed by cocktails and hors d'ouevres from 5:00-6:00) at Le Meridien (Galleria) in Dallas. We hope you can join us for this informative seminar.
