    If the employer tells you to take lunch, then you must take lunch.

    Past that, these are KY's laws on the subject.

    Am I entitled to a rest period, and do I get paid for this time?
    You are entitled to a rest period of at least ten (10) minutes during each four hours you work. The rest period is a paid break.

    Am I entitled to a meal period, and do I get paid for this time?
    You are entitled to a reasonable period for a meal no sooner than the third nor later than the fifth hour of your work shift unless you and your employer have mutually agreed to some other arrangement. A duty-free meal period does not have to be paid.

      If your employer tells you to take a lunch break, then you must/need to take it. If you don't, your employer "can" discipline you up to & including termination.
      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
