Effective January 2011, pursuant to changes to California Labor Code Section 512, construction workers, commercial drivers, certain security officers and employees of electrical corporations, gas corporations, or publicly owned electrical utilities are now exempt from meal break requirements if they are covered by a valid collective bargaining agreement which expressly includes, among other things, provisions for wages, work hours, meal periods and final and binding arbitration of disputes about meal period provisions. As a result, employers of such workers no longer face the uncertainty posed by the pending California Supreme Court decisions in Brinker Restaurant Corp. v. Superior Court and Brinkley v. Public Storage, Inc.
