  • are breaks mandatory in MS?

    We work in buffet as a servers 5 to 7 hours per day, do we have to take a break? Menager sad that we have to take one hour break on friday and saturday and sometimes on sunday. We are not happy with his decision, becouse we have tip position. It is from about 3 manths and it is becouse he hired more people than he needed, so now he got to make for them schedule and he makes them to break us during our break.

    A quick (but not exhaustive) search of Mississippi's DOL website did not indicate that rest or meal breaks are required in your State. It's irrelevant though. Your employer determines your hours of work and if your boss wants you to take a break, then you have to take a break.
