  • lunch question Alabama Pennsylvania

    I live in PA, I know state law does not make us take breaks but our employer does. We take a 30 minute unpaied lunch. But we are not allowed to leave when off the clock for our lunch. I would think if your off the clock you should be allowed to step out.

    For federal rules only.

    29 CFR 785.19 - Meal.

    (b) Where no permission to leave premises. It is not necessary that an employee be permitted to leave the premises if he is otherwise completely freed from duties during the meal period.

      I believe, but am not 100% certain, that PA follows Federal law on this issue.

      Patty will know for certain when she gets here.
      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.

        It does. Off the top of my head, I believe NJ (and possibly CA) have such laws, but they're very few and far between.
        I don't respond to Private Messages unless the moderator specifically refers you to me for that purpose. Thank you.

          I know CA does since I just looked it up for someone else the other night. But as Patty said, few states do.
