    Nope, it mentioned nothing about when the meal period must be given.

    However, you notice that the laws Betty3 cited do not contain any limitations on WHEN the meal period must be given (very few states that have meal requirements do). Doesn't make a whole lot of sense, since the intention of a meal period is not only to eat, but to take a good break from the work day. Who needs a break after working only 20 minutes? Doesn't appear that the law prevents it, though.

    Meals and Breaks

    Nevada employers must provide employees a meal period of at least 30 minutes when
    working for a continuous period of 8 hours. Employers must provide employees a break of
    a minimum of 10 minutes for each 4 hours worked or major fraction thereof. Employers do
    not need to provide a break to employees working less that 3.5 hours. The break must be
    paid. Nev. Rev. Stat. 608.019.

    Nevada wage and hour regulations explain the break requirement as follows:
    An employee that works at least 3 1/2 continuous hours is permitted:
    (a) One 10-minute rest period if the employee works at least 3 1/2 continuous hours and
    less than 7 continuous hours;
    (b) Two 10-minute rest periods if the employee works at least 7 continuous hours and less
    than 11 continuous hours;
    (c) Three 10-minute rest periods if the employee works at least 11 continuous hours and
    less than 15 continuous hours; or
    (d) Four 10-minute rest periods if the employee works at least 15 continuous hours and
    less than 19 continuous hours.
    Nev. Admin. Code 608.16. (Insofar as practical, rest periods must be in the middle of each work period.)

    Exceptions to the meal and break requirements include:
    (a) Situations where only one person is employed at a particular place of employment.
    (b) Employees included within the provisions of a collective bargaining agreement.
    (c) Exemptions granted by the Labor Commission after the employer has shown sufficient
    evidence that business necessity precludes providing such benefits.
    Nev. Rev. Stat. 608.019.

    An employee may voluntarily agree to forgo any rest or meal period. Nev. Admin. Code
    608.16.

    lunch and rest break laws in nevada Nevada

    is it legal for me to be told to go on a 30 minute lunch break after being at work for just 20 minutes out of an 8 hour shift. and is it legal to be denied a 10 minute rest break after a 3 1/2 hour time period of working.
