You've been working for a particular California company as an independent contractor for quite some time. You are happy with your wages and generally satisfied with your work environment, except that you believe you should actually be classified as an employee of the company, not an independent worker. Some people might ask you why you care as long as you have a job and are earning income.
Working numerous hours a day often proves tiring. Though you may enjoy your work, you likely enjoy down time and the ability to take a break when necessary. Unfortunately, some workers may have their rights violated if employers do not comply with employment laws relating to meal and rest breaks. Certain stipulations apply to requirements relating to employers providing breaks.
