Rodriguez v. Taco Bell Corp., 16-15465

Affirmed that Taco Bell Corp. did not violate its employees' rights to meal breaks when it provided a special offer that employees could purchase a meal from the restaurant at a discount, as long as they ate the meal in the restaurant. An employee argued that Taco Bell should pay employees for their time because the company required them to eat the discounted meal in the restaurant; the idea behind the offer related to deterring theft. However, the Ninth Circuit found no violation of California meal break requirements, and affirmed summary judgment against the proposed class claim.
