Mandatory Employee Breaks: What to Do When Employees Are Not Taking Their Breaks

October 22

Learn how to minimize company-wide liability by ensuring your employees are receiving mandatory breaks.

Employers are facing an unfettered number of wage and hour claims on an individual and company-wide basis. Many of these claims arise from an employer’s duty to provide breaks under various employment laws. This topic will provide an overview of break requirements and then delve into best practices for the most cutting-edge break policies available to employers, including a compliance and reporting program for violations. In addition, this material will discuss ‘real’ feedback from employee interviews on what matters to them in the workplace and provide insight into why this should be important to employers, both from a legal liability perspective and also employee morale. Finally, this topic will detail the potential exposure for employers that fail to ensure their employees are receiving their legal break obligations under applicable law and provide some further guidance on how to minimize company-wide liability.

Learning Objectives

  • You will be able to describe cutting-edge compliance program techniques for employee break policies.
  • You will be able to discuss the impact of not complying with break requirements on an employer and best practices for ensuring this does not happen to your business.
  • You will be able to explain the parameters of break requirements and outline concrete procedures in implementing in a strong policy and training your supervisors on enforcing your policy.
  • You will be able to identify areas that are important to your employees that minimize wage and hour exposure.
