Whether you work at a startup, nonprofit organization, small business, or large corporation, remote work has become normalized in recent years. In fact, working from home is so normal, that over the last ten years remote work has increased about 91%. Although a large majority of companies have remote employees, many businesses still prefer that their employees come into the office every day to communicate face-to-face. Although traditional shared collaboration spaces work for some, remote work is a reality everyone will soon face. With the rise of the coronavirus, businesses everywhere are struggling to figure out how to manage their company without one central location.

Recently, Timesheets.com updated the service to include a notification of any records exceeding a specified value when closing a payroll period. This new feature intends to resolve meal break violations. California, specifically, has a law that requires employees to take a 30-minute lunch break for every 5 consecutive hours worked when the employee works more than 6 hours in a single day. An employer must relieve an employee of all tasks and duties during this meal break period. If the employee does not get a meal break—during which they are relieved of their work duties—for each five consecutive hours worked, a violation occurs. A meal break violation is payable to the employee at the rate of one hour at regular pay. Violation pay does not count towards overtime calculations.
