California Supreme Court Considers Major Employment Case

Hosted by

Employers and employees are closely watching a case heard today by the State Supreme Court. It's a class action suit by thousands of waiters, waitresses, bartenders, cooks and others against the Brinker Restaurant Corporation, whose outlets include Chili's, Magianno's Little Italy and Romano's Macaroni Grill. It boils down to this: when an employer promises rest and meal-breaks for its employees, does the employer have to make sure the workers actually take them?
