California has long had a day of rest requirement. In fact it has existed long before overtime and minimum wage. It guarantees an employee “one day’s rest therefrom in seven”. But which employees and what exactly is one day in seven? This was really never litigated before the current case of Mendoza v. Nordstrom in which the ruling was just handed down on May 8th. Rather than my trying to explain the entire court case in a blog, I will, instead, urge you to read the recap of the case as presented by Sheppart Mullin Richter & Hampton’s Brian S. Fong for the Mondaq News Update Service. It is an in-depth look at the ruling and the impact on employers.
