In California, employers must allow a total of 10-minute paid rest period for every four hours worked.
As much as it is practicable, the rest period should be in the middle of the work period. If an employer does not allow a rest period, the employer should pay the employee one hour of pay at the employee’s regular rate of pay for each workday that the rest period is not provided.
