My Employees Say They Prefer To Skip Their Breaks And Instead Add Them Onto The Meal Period So They Can Have An Extended Lunch. As Long As They Receive The Correct Total Break Time, Is This Allowed?

No. To be in compliance, you must require employees to take all breaks separately and during the proper time periods (unless the nature or circumstances of the work require otherwise).
