Are You Rounding Times for Meal Periods? Stop!

The California Supreme Court overturned an appellate court decision approving the use of “rounding policies” for meal periods, finding that the thirty-minute meal period was too severely impacted by losing even a few minutes.

Employers can still use a “rounding policy” for the beginning and end times of work periods, as long as the policy is fair and neutral on its face and in practice.
