Petition for Preemption of California Regulations on Meal Breaks and Rest Breaks for Commercial Motor Vehicle Drivers; Rejection for Failure To Meet Threshold Requirement
Document Number: E8-30646
Type: Notice
Date: 2008-12-24
Agency: Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
FMCSA announces the rejection of a petition for preemption of California laws and regulations requiring employers to provide employees with meal and rest breaks. The petition does not satisfy the threshold requirement for preemption under 49 U.S.C. 31141(c) because the provisions at issue are not ``laws and regulations on commercial motor vehicle safety,'' but rather laws and regulations applied generally to California employers.
