You are entitled to a rest period of at least 10 minutes during each four hours you work. The rest period is a paid break.


You are entitled to a reasonable period for a meal no sooner than the third nor later than the fifth hour of your work shift unless you and your employer have mutually agreed to some other arrangement. A duty-free meal period does not have to be paid.
