  • Short break off premises?? Washington

    Hi, I am an hourly employee in Washington state. And recently I was complaint by the controller that I am not suppose to take off somewhere during the short 15 minutes break. But I only went to the mini mart store next door to get something to fill my stomach craving and came back to work within 10minutes. Am I allow to do that during the short break? Please advice...

      However, I don't see anything in the law posted that says you have to be allowed to leave the premises during the break.
      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.

        In other words, no, they are not required to allow you to leave the premises. They are required to see that you get your break.
