When your employer fails to provide you with a meal or rest break, they are liable to owe you an hour of pay at your regular rate of pay. They can only owe you one hour of pay for each day either a meal and/or rest break violation occurs. In other words, even if they failed to provide you with more than 1 rest break and more than 1 meal break on a given day, they still will only owe you two hours of pay (one for the missed meal break and one for the missed rest break). However, If they properly provided you with all of your meals breaks but failed to provide you with multiple rest breaks, they will only owe you for one hour of pay that day.
