Apple Owes $2 Million For Not Giving Workers Meal Breaks

The company will be paying up for a number of complaints that include failure to provide breaks and untimely payments. Unfortunately, each worker will only, at best, get $95.

California law requires employers to give hourly workers a 30 minute meal break if they're working more than five hours a day. They're also require to provide 10 minute breaks for every four hours worked. In 2013, the case became a class action lawsuit that included California employees who had worked at Apple between 2007 and 2012, approximately 21,000 people. Apple made changes to its scheduling policy in 2012. Jeffrey Hogue, one of the attorneys who represented the class action, said the $2 million verdict came down last Friday -- but Apple could owe more money.
