Business breaking a legislation??

Postby JGRD146 » Sat Apr 04, 2009 11:18 pm

I currently work for a well known business in retail and i just started. They didnt explain to me clearly my break times and when i asked them they said half an hour and then it slipped my mind. My set hours from monday to friday are 9:00am-5:45pm and i get 30mins lunch only. Is this correct or is this breaking a legislation?

No, definitley not breaking any laws, i'm pretty sure it's only 20 minutes if you are working over 6 hours. I work part-time in a restaurant as i'm a student and sometimes do 10 hour days and only get 30 minutes break which is rubbish x

It's not breaking the law at all. My old company (a supermarket) gave an extra 15 min break if you worked e.g. 9-6 but because you are finishing 15mins earlier then aren't entitled to give you that extra break!
A hug is a great gift, one size fits all.
