Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
For starters, Labor Code 512 provides for mandatory meal breaks of 30 minutes. See:§ionNum=512.
If an employer fails to provide an employee a meal period in accordance with an applicable IWC Order, the employer must pay one additional hour of pay at the employee's regular rate of pay for each workday that the meal period is not provided. IWC Orders and Labor Code Section 226.7 This additional hour is not counted as hours worked for purposes of overtime calculations. Labor Code, § 226.7, subd. (c); Cal. Code of Regs., tit. 8, §§ 11010–11150, subds. (11)(B), (12)(B).
The one hour is per workday, not per missed break.
