On-Duty Meal Period Contract (California)

Contract template sketch
About this template
The On-Duty Meal Period Contract (California) is a legal template that outlines the terms and conditions for employees in California who voluntarily choose to waive their right to an off-duty meal period and agree to an on-duty meal period.

In California, labor laws require employers to provide employees with an uninterrupted meal break of at least 30 minutes if they work for more than five hours in a day, except in certain circumstances where the nature of the work prevents it. However, there are situations and industries where employees may prefer or need to have an on-duty meal period instead of taking an off-duty meal break.

This legal template ensures that employers and employees explicitly understand and acknowledge the agreement to waive the off-duty meal period requirement, and establish the conditions under which the on-duty meal period will take place. It includes provisions such as the employee's consent to the on-duty meal period, compensation, duration, and circumstances under which the employee can revoke or modify the agreement.

By using this legal template, employers and employees can ensure compliance with labor laws while creating a clear agreement that respects the employee's preferences and specific working conditions. This contract helps protect both parties by defining their rights and obligations regarding on-duty meal periods.
