  • Iowa Labor Laws - Breaks and Meals

    I am trying to find information about this. I'm having a hard time finding it on the internet. I basically want to know the laws about breaks and meals for the state of Iowa. For example, if I was to work 5 and a half hours, would I be entitled to a break or not? and how long? That sort of thing. Thank you for your time.

    The reason you are not finding it is that there is no law in Iowa requiring breaks of any kind for employees over the age of 16.

    So, no, assuming that you are over 16, if you were to work 5 1/2 hours you would not be entitled to a break by law. It's possible that company policy might provide one.

    If you are 16 or under, you are entitled to a break of 30 minutes if you work 5 or more hours.
    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.
