Jeremy Mittman and Gabriel Hemphill were featured in Law360 for authoring the article, "Calif. Premium Pay Ruling May Raise Employer Liability Risks," published on June 7, 2022. The article discusses the California Supreme Court decision in Naranjo v. Spectrum Security Services Inc. that ruled that premium pay for missed meal and rest breaks constitutes wages that must be reported on wage statements during employment pursuant to California Labor Code Section 226, and paid within statutory deadlines upon an employee's discharge or resignation pursuant to California Labor Code Section 203.
From the article...
