California Supreme Court Will Review On-Call Rest Break Decision
Earlier this year, a California appellate court ruled that on-call rest periods are lawful. In Augustus v. ABM Security Systems, Inc., the court ruled that an employer may require employees to remain “on-call” during rest periods without violating laws mandating paid breaks. This decision was considered a victory for California businesses.
However, the California Supreme Court has now granted review of the Augustus decision.
Employers will want to stay tuned for updates on this case. Consult an attorney with any questions relating to on-call rest breaks.
