  • FL meal breaks

    In FL, if an employee is salaried, is she still entitled to a meal break for an 8.5 hour shift?

    I could not find any law that required meal breaks in Florida for any non-minor employees. Do you have a link to the law you believe exists?
    I don't respond to Private Messages unless the moderator specifically refers you to me for that purpose. Thank you.

      FL meal breaks

      I do not. I have looked on the federal website and some states are listed but FL is not. I have a friend who is in this situation. Her boss wants to change all managers schedules so they do not get a meal break but just have to eat whenever/if ever they get a chance. They don't mind this occasionally but they do not want it to be a permanent change.

        The state of Florida does not mandate meal breaks for any adult employees, regardless of their pay status. While I don't necessarily agree with what your friend's employer is doing, it is legal and she/they have no recourse except to find jobs with employers who recognize the occasional need for a 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.
