Must An Employer Provide Rest Or Meal Breaks?

There is no state or federal law that requires an employer to give rest or meal breaks. This is a benefit that the employer may choose to provide. However, if a break is offered, the break time is considered as paid time. In the case of meal periods, they are not considered paid time if the meal period is half an hour or longer and the employee is completely relieved from duty.
