  • shift breaks in mississippi Mississippi

    i work for a co. in mississippi we work 8 1/2 to 12 hrs .
    with i started i worked 12 hrs and we got 3 breaks 2 15mins and a 30min unpaid lunch
    if you work 8 1/2 hrs you get 2 15mins breaks and a 30min break without pay
    now i work 8 1/2+ nights we get 1 15mins break 1 30min without payed and if we work more then 10 hrs we can have a sec 15mins break
    and i would like to know how they can do that ?

    Because there are no federal or Mississippi laws requiring the company to do more than that.

    Some states have requirements List of states with break rules

      If you are getting any breaks at all, you are getting more than the law requires. Sorry.
      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.
