  • Non-Exempt vs Exempt 10 min. Breaks Illinois

    Just wondering if an employer has to implement the same rules for both group of employees,exempt and non-exempt, in regards to 10-15 minute breaks?
    I know they are not required to provide any other breaks than at least 20 minutes meal break, but if only one group is permitted to take two 10-15 minute breaks would you say the other group should be allowed to have those short breaks too?
    This is not a hotel business.
    Best regards,

    Nope, no requirement at all.
    I post with the full knowledge and support of my employer, though the opinions rendered are my own and not necessarily representative of their position. In other words, I'm a free agent.

      Since exempt/non-exempt status is not a characteristic protected by law, it is legal to have different sets of rules for them.
      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.

          Thank you for your post above. It is very seldom we get thanked for an answer when it isn't the answer the poster wanted to hear.

          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
