  • NY length of paid breaks

    I have a question in reference to breaks. How long should an employee have for a morning or afternoon break according to the NYS Labor Law? Can we offer a ten (10) minute break?

    What if they exceed this amount of time? Can they be docked for the extra time? (In other words - if we offer a 10 minute paid break for non-exempt employees and they take 15, are we within the law by docking them the 5 minutes over?)

    Thank you for all your help, now and in the past. You have been a life saver!
