Policy 621 – Work Breaks

Date Issued: 10/80
Date Revised: 11/12

If the workload permits, breaks and rest periods are allowed. Employees should be aware that taking a break or a short rest period depends upon the department involved and whether normal work can be continued while employees take breaks. Where rest periods are allowed, they are limited to two 15-minute breaks per shift. Breaks typically may not be accumulated to allow employees to leave work early or to extend or replace a lunch period.
