In so deciding, the 2d District explicitly referred to Brinker, stating that Brinker has conclusively resolved this issue, and noted:
Our Supreme Court determined that “[a]n employer's duty with respect to meal breaks under both section 512, subdivision (a) and Wage Order No. 5 is an obligation to provide a meal period to its employees. The employer satisfies this obligation if it relieves its employees of all duty, relinquishes control over their activities and permits them a reasonable opportunity to take an uninterrupted 30–minute break, and does not impede or discourage them from doing so. [¶] On the other hand, the employer is not obligated to police meal breaks and ensure no work thereafter is performed.The "tip" for employers is to make sure that their policies correctly dictate that employees are required to take their meal and rest breaks and "relieve" them of all employment duties during such breaks. However, as noted, the employer is not required to "police" such break taking.
