  • Indiana Lunch Breaks

    I'm a casual worker so I have no set hours at work. After working at my job for almost a year now, I'm averaging a little over 6hrs a night M-Th, and anywhere from 8-12hrs on Fridays. I was just informed last night that they are automatically taking out 30mins for a lunch break of which I've never had a lunch break since I started. As a casual employee I was told I don't get a lunch break. Is their anyway I can get that money back from when I worked over 6 hours since I never took a lunch break?

    Yes. If you worked instead of taking the meal period they have deducted, you can file a claim for unpaid wages with the state Dept. of Labor.

    And now, you take one, right?
    I don't respond to Private Messages unless the moderator specifically refers you to me for that purpose. Thank you.

      I will from now on. I didn't find out about this until last night. I was told when I was hired that casuals don't get lunch breaks, benefits, or paid holidays. That's what I was shocked when I heard it.
