+ - SPAM: Law doesn't limit breaks employees can take

Submitted by Rhristop
Rhristop (3629811) writes "Taking two 30-minute breaks during the workday does not violate the law. It may, however, violate your employer's work rules and result in discipline or termination. The state of the law is clear on this point.

Although many states require employers to provide their employees a meal break and rest periods throughout the workday, neither federal law nor Arizona law has such a categorical mandate. An Arizona employer generally can require its employees to work a continuous shift without giving them a break."
