    In your state yes, they can.
    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.

      Agree, as long as you are relieved of all duties during that time. They don't have to pay you even if you stay in the store as long as you do no work during lunch.

      I'm assuming your an hourly non-exempt employee.

        You are mistaken. Neither Federal nor New Mexico law requires breaks of any kind.

          My post above looks as if I am talking to Betty. In actuality, there was a spammer whom I did not immediately identify as such who posted incorrect information related to the thread. Once I identified him, his posts were removed. Since the OP may find the link in my post useful, I am leaving it there but Betty's response is perfectly fine.
