Taco Bell Avoids Getting Grilled Over Meal Break Lawsuit

July 26, 2018  |  From HRCalifornia Extra

Taco ‘bout a lose-lose situation — Taco Bell was sued for offering its employees a discount on food. But the employer won the case: The Ninth Circuit held that Taco Bell didn’t violate California meal break laws when it offered employees the food discount only if the food was eaten on site. Consequently, employees who were part of a class action lawsuit against Taco Bell were not entitled to compensation for time spent on site eating discounted meals during meal breaks (Rodriguez v. Taco Bell, No. 16-15465 (9th Cir. 2018)).​
