If you work from(NNN) NNN-NNNN that is 8 hours. If your meal period is "on duty," then you're entitled to 8 hours pay. for each day of work under the stated work schedule.

If you do not have a written agreement made in accordance with IWC Order 7-2001(11)(C)-(D), then the employer owes you an extra one hour of pay for every meal break not provided in accordance with the IWC Order. If you file a wage claim, you would be entitled to back wages for the past three years -- which could add up to a nice chunk of change.

To file a DLSE wage claim, see this link.

Hope this helps.
