HR Form of the Week: Meal and Rest Break Requirements by State

Posted By: Guardian HR Staff Posted On: October 27, 2023 Share:

Each week, we will feature a different document from our forms library and provide information about where to find it, what it's used for, and any necessary instructions. With this program, you'll always be one step ahead of the game when it comes to finding the forms you need.

This week, the HR Form of the Week is a Meal and Rest Break Requirements by State Chart.

For clients with access to the Forms Library, you can locate the document as follows:

Meal and Rest Break Requirements for employees vary from State to State, as there is no federal law that mandates these breaks. Instead, each State has its own set of labor laws governing meal and rest breaks. This weeks’ Guardian HR Form of the Week provides a current, general overview chart of the meal and rest break requirements for all States. Specific policies, details and more information to each state can be found in the Forms Library’s folder titled “Breaks”.

We hope you find this information valuable and that it helps to make your HR experience easier and more efficient.
