Brinker Restaurant Corp vs. Superior Court

APRIL 13, 2012

BRINKER DECISION PROVIDES GUIDANCE ON EMPLOYER’S DUTY TO PROVIDE MEAL AND REST BREAKS

By Eric S. Beane and Kevin Harlow

Yesterday the California Supreme Court issued its long-awaited decision in Brinker Restaurant Corp v. Superior Court, Case No. S166350 (April 12, 2012). The decision is very favorable for employers and provides much-needed guidance as to an employer’s duty to provide meal and rest breaks to its employees.

In addition, we expect that a litany of similar wage and hour cases, which had been placed on hold pending the court's decision in Brinker, will now be addressed in short order and provide further guidance to California employers.

This alert summarizes the court’s key holdings in the wage and hour context and provides practical tips for employers.
