What are the regulations or laws in California relating to employers sending you home from work (because it's slow) after your hours have already been scheduled?

California: My mom works in a salon where she needs to work at least 30 hours/week to keep her health insurance, which is fully paid by the company. Each week, she and everyone else is scheduled to work 30 hours, but when they're at the salon, they are often asked or told to go home early when it's a slow day. Basically, the company doesn't want to pay their hourly wages when no customers are coming in. Lately, everyone has been asked to go home early. Unfortunately, this affects those who need to work 30 hrs to keep their insurance benefits.Can anyone point me to any resource on this particular issue? I would SOOOO appreciate it!
