    I worked 6 hour shift per day. And I was told I only get a 15 min break for the whole shift. That's against the law! So I said something and then I was removed because I spoke up. While all his other employees work 6 hours and they also get 15 min breaks. He's getting away with it and I want him busted. Can you help me. He owns viva supermarket in Sacramento California. His name is Sean.

    I’ve been with the company for almost 3 years. There’s have been several times that I’ve gone to lunch past my 5th hour, do to other employees would go before me. I can’t leave patients be themselves. Being in the healthcare setting where patients must be taken care of. But I do go to lunch just past my fifth hour. Does my employer owe me the extra hour of pay since the 5th hour window has been missed?

    If you typically worked a 12 hour shift in which zero uninterrupted, off the clock, meal breaks were taken (not possible due to work assigned) are you entitled to a second penalty of 1hr pay? Would it be 2 hours of penalty pay plus 1 hour of OT violation? This is not including the other rest break and OT violations.
