What are the rules for meal and rest breaks for employees in California?

The general rule of thumb is that employees in California are entitled to a paid, ten-minute rest break for every four hours of work, and an unpaid, 30-minute meal break for every five hours worked. Your meal break should be completely uninterrupted, and you should be relieved of all your duties during that time.
