    If your employer requires that you take breaks, you must take them or you can be disciplined up to & including being terminated for not doing so. However, you do need to be paid for any breaks you didn't take & worked through. A non-exempt employee must be paid for all time worked. The main question is have you been getting paid for ALL time/hours that you ACTUALLY worked each day?

    Thanks.

    Breaks are irrelevant. Are you being paid for all the time you actually WORK?

    However, if you are being charged with an unpaid break when you are actually working during that time, you must be paid for it. That's a separate issue.

    There are a very few states that have some type of legal interest in "split shifts". TX is not one of those very few states.

    It's more like a split shift, but neither of them are prohibited by law for general employment.

    started a topic 3hour breaks Texas

    3hour breaks Texas

    is it legal for your boss to tell you to take 3hour breaks while on part time?
    isnt that like double shifts or something?
