What breaks should I get at work?
Clear language definitions to common legal terms.
In most jobs, you get at least 30 minutes off after every 5 hours of work. Your employer does not have to pay you for this time.
If you agree to it, you get two 15-minute breaks instead of one 30-minute break. You can make this agreement in writing or by talking with your employer.
Your employer does not have to give you any other breaks.
