    Can you direct me to a spot where I can find that a luch break is not required. The link you had in your last post just said that 10 hr days are considered full work days. I am being forced totake a 1/2 hr lunch even though I arrive 30 minutes after everyone else and I have nothing to do for the 20 minutes after I eat. I need to give my supervisor proof that there is no law stating i MUST take a 30 minute lunch. Thank you.

    Florida does not have a break or meal requirement with the exception to the latter for minors.

    Nothing in Florida law requires the change that is described. I have attached a link to a copy of the Florida labor statutes if you want to look yourself: http://www.flsenate.gov/Statutes/ind...448/ch0448.htm

    Being Told Otherwise

    I have been employed with the same Florida employer for the last 2 yrs - We had a no lunch/dinner break policy & were allowed to munch at our desks in place of lunch/dinner break - Last week we were told the Florida Labor Laws on this issue have been amended & we are now being required to take a non-paid-for 1/2hr lunch/dinner break when working 6hrs or more per day - I can not find this ammendment anywhere - Also, we were being paid bi-monthly (15th & 31st) based on a yearly pay structure - We have now been told this too has been amended in Florida & only supervisor/management employees can be paid in this fashion - We are now being paid on an 80hr pay period, yet still receiving our checks on the 15 & 31st, with a "quarterly catch-up" check for the pay difference between 80hr paychecks vs our yearly pay structure - This does not sound right to me - And again, I can not find anything in print - Can you direct me to anything regarding these 2 issues???

    There isn't any requirement in Florida to offer a break or a meal period. With that understanding, I assume you don't need a site proving that breaks and meal periods are not required.

    Question regarding florida labor law?

    I have recently started a job working for the Olive Garden here in Florida! I usually work a 10 hour shift as a waitress, and am not given one single break!
    I am not even given time to eat a meal during my shift? When i inquired about this to my boss, I was told that they are not required to give me a break, regardless of how many hours I work. This does not seem right to me? If anyone could give me any guidance on this, I would greatly appreciate it! Also, you could please direct me to any site that would allow me to print any documentation proving my case?
    Thanks!
