My question involves labor and employment law for the state of: CA
I have assigned break and lunch time schedules. I have made a process in which if one can not take their break because of a situation, they should request myself or another staff member to relieve them so they can take their break.
An employee has decided instead of taking breaks, wants to put an hour each day for that time.
Is it within my rights as an employer to consider this a disciplinary matter, up to and including termination. This employee has been insubordinate in other matters but I would like to know if I'm legally covered if I use this matter as reason for termination.
