  • Forced Long Break Minnesota

    If an employer doesn't want to pay OT is it legal for them to force a long break in the middle of the day. For instance you have a shift from 8-8 but they realize that after 9 hours you'll be on overtime. So they tell you that you need to take a lunch from 2-5 then come back for 3 hours.

    Yes, that is legal. It would also be legal for them to send you home early.
    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.

      Thanks for your speedy reply. I figured that was going to be the answer when I couldn't find anything against it after a couple hours of research.
