Meal and Break Laws
Download a PDF version of our 50 State Survey covering meal and break laws. Meal and break laws address issues such as whether employees are entitled to a meal and/or break period and, if so, when the meal and/or break period must occur during an employee’s workday. This version of our meal and break laws 50 state survey is in portrait format.
As with all of our 50 State Surveys, our meal and break laws survey contains links to the online resource upon which each summary is based, if such a resource is available. In addition to covering all 50 states, the survey also covers the District of Columbia.
