    « Wage & Hour Conference in Orange County | Main | Supreme Court Declines to Publish Prevailing Wage Decision »



    It is more complicated then you are making it. Look at the provision in Section 512(a)
    for waiving a meal period after 10 hours of work, which says you can only do it if you didn't
    waive the first meal period. How can you waive the first meal period if the shift was
    more than 6 hours under your construction of the statute? Also, you have to admit that
    the term "provide" does not usually mean "force someone to take" in any other context.
    I am not saying Brinker will win, but it is a closer call than your rhetoric suggests.

    Anyway, oral argument was continued so don't expect a result soon.
