Is it a federal law that states you have to take a lunch break?
Federal law states that your employer has to provide you with the opportunity to take a half hour break every 6 hours they don't however have to pay you for it.also they have to provide opportunity for 15 min every 4 hours no pay you can however deny it and work through tho most employers will not let you work through because it opens them up for potential law suits

That is federal law states can make it stricter but they can't make it more lenient
for those who say in California or any other state its federal law ummm Federal means United States wide state means Cal. etc
I wish! No, it isn't.
Some corporations do have this as a policy, however, and you would need to abide by their policy if you are employed by them.
every four two hrs an employer is suppose to give a 10-15 min break min.
every four hours if an 8 hr shift a min. of a 30 min. lunch break - but realistically workers presently have no rights at all - the unions are dead and government is corrupt - so most employees just move on and move on unless they have benefits that keep them somewhere.
I live in CT and by law you have to take a 30min. unpaid lunch if you work over 6 hours. Don't know how it is everywhere?! I hope this helps.
No, they have to give you one but the government doesnt say you have to take it. Most workplaces will ahve rules of their own that mandate that you take one though especially union shops.
I thought there were certain regulations for how many and how long cetain breaks you take are compared to the hours worked., but according to this website that is not so.
Yup. After 3hrs you take a 10min break, after 5hrs take your lunch (whether it be 30min or 1hr) than at 7hrs of work you get another 10min break.
But you must take your lunch..the company can get into trouble. It's a labor law.
You need to eat throughout the day.
in california it is a federal law that you have to take a lunch break after a certain amount of hours of working, i think 5?
a 2 hour break 15-20 minutes i think its state law
