Employers Must Pay Piece Rate Workers for "Non-Productive Time"
Over the past few years, we have seen California law evolve to cover more and more de minimis and non-working time. For example, on January 1, 2016, the California Legislature passed Labor Code section 226.2, requiring piece-rate workers be paid for time spent on breaks and “other nonproductive time.”
