Rest and Meal Periods

Each workday, full-time nonexempt employees are provided with two rest periods of 15 minutes in length. To the extent possible, rest periods will be provided in the middle of work periods. Since this time is counted and paid as time worked, employees must not be absent from their workstations beyond the allotted rest period time.

All full-time employees are provided with one meal period of a minimum of 30 minutes to a maximum of 60 minutes in length each workday. Supervisors will schedule meal periods to accommodate operating requirements. Most employees will be relieved of all active responsibilities and restrictions during meal periods and will not be compensated for that time.
