Thank you for your question.
Per the Georgia Department of Labor, Georgia state law does not require break periods. Here is the link:
The information does not indicate whether break periods are required for employees under 18. In many states, the law differentiates between of age employees and younger employees.
Please let me know if you have any follow-up questions.
I am not licensed in Georgia, but most states simply do not have statutes that require a break period. There is no statute speaking to the issue, so there is no obligation for the employer to provide breaks. There are exceptions, such as the exceptions for minors I indicated as well as the requirement to offer a break to breastfeeding mothers for the purpose of expressing milk. Those requirements would be in the statutes.
