Garcia v. Superior Court, 80 Cal. App. 5th 63 (2022) | FMCSA and Meal and Rest Breaks
Nick Ferraro | August 1, 2022 | Legal Updates
In a December 28, 2018, order, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) concluded that California’s meal and rest break rules were preempted under the Motor Carrier Safety Act of 1984 (49 U.S.C. § 31101 et seq.). Petitioners contend that this decision does not apply to bar meal and rest break claims arising from conduct that predated the order. We agree.
