  • REQUIRED lunch break? Florida

    In Florida here. Am I REQUIRED to take a lunch break? I work a full 8 hour day. Is there a law that says I must take one? I know one must be provided but do I have to take it?

    Thanks,

    Tim

    You are only partially correct. The law does NOT require the employer provide meal breaks or rest breaks in Florida. However, if the employer requires you to take one, you take one.
    I don't respond to Private Messages unless the moderator specifically refers you to me for that purpose. Thank you.

      You are required to take a lunch break if your employer says you are, regardless of whether the law says you have to take one or not.
      The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.

        OK, we ARE putting this in the FAQ, right?

          Oh, there will have to be multiple FAQs on breaks.

          Does my state require...Do I have to take...Can I leave the building...When can I...Paid...Unpaid...No one to replace me...

            Oh, yes, this is at the top of the list.
