    Since FL has no laws requiring breaks for adult employees at all, yes, they get to make the rules about it. Yes, they can require that you stay on the premises.

    In other words...

    If there is no law against it, they can do it.

    meal/break periods Fl. - No state law except in the context of employing minors (between the ages of 14 & 17). State law requires minors to be given a 30-min. break if the minor has worked for any four-hr. stretch.

    Thanks,
    Legal under federal rules. State rules can be different. Florida is not my state, but it has a reputation for being "just like federal" for most labor law purposes. It is possible but not likely that Florida has a law to the contrary.

    (b) Where no permission to leave premises. It is not necessary that an employee be permitted to leave the premises if he is otherwise completely freed from duties during the meal period.

    Breaks

    I was told that I am not allowed to leave the premises during my break. We are allowed 2 10 minute breaks a day and a one hour lunch (must clock out for lunch but not breaks).

    Is this legal? Can they tell me not to leave the premises during a break?
