    Each employee must have a thirty (30) minute unpaid rest break or meal period if scheduled to work six (6) hours consecutively, except in workplace environments that by their nature of business provide for ample opportunity to rest or take an appropriate break. Such break shall not be scheduled during or before the first hour of scheduled work activity.

    You can be scheduled for whatever # of hrs. your employer requests you to be. (There are only a few occupations that limit the # of hrs. that can be worked - ie, airline pilot, interstate truck driver).

    You said you are a salary employee - are you exempt or non-exempt?
    Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. Leo Buscaglia
