Am I Entitled To Breaks?
Any employee who works a shift exceeding five hours is entitled to an unpaid 30 minute uninterrupted meal break when there are two or more employees on duty. Other breaks, such as fifteen minute "coffee" breaks, are at the employer's discretion to offer but must be paid if they are less than 30 minutes.
