Hi, Welcome to JustAnswer, In what State do you work ?

Employment Lawyer: Andrea, Esq., Lawyer replied 2 years ago
I researched your Question and I found the following - I realize that a “break” just a few minutes after an employee’s workday begins is a little silly. But neither Federal Labor Laws, nor State Laws require that an employer give his employees any “break” time. So, any break given to employees is strictly within the discretion of the employer. If the employer chose not to give employees any break at all during the workday, the employees would not have any recourse against the employer. In other words, any breaks or what times these breaks can be taken would be strictly up to the employer’s discretion. I wish I could give you the Answer you were hoping for, so please do not penalize me for giving you a correct Answer. Kindest Regards, ANDREA
