SB 435 Signed

SB 435 (compensation, meal and rest or recovery periods) amending Labor Code § 226.7 concerning meal and rest periods, has been signed by Governor Brown:

Existing law prohibits an employer from requiring an employee to work during any meal or rest period mandated by an order of the Industrial Welfare Commission (IWC) and establishes penalties for an employer’s failure to provide a mandated meal or rest period.

This bill would make that prohibition applicable to a meal or rest or recovery period mandated by applicable statute or applicable regulation, standard, or order of the IWC, the Occupational Safety and Health Standards Board, or the Division of Occupational Safety and Health. The bill would exempt specified employees from the prohibition. The bill would require an employer to pay an employee, for any meal or rest or recovery period mandated by law, one additional hour of pay at the employee’s regular rate of compensation for each workday that the meal or rest or recovery period is not provided. The bill would define “recovery period” for those purposes.
