Q. I need help finding information on rest/meal break laws and solutions to providing employees with these breaks.
Rest breaks are covered by state labor laws. For a summary of relevant laws in each state, see “Minimum Paid Rest Period Requirements Under State Law for Adult Employees in Private Sector” from the U.S.Department of Labor (http://www.dol.gov/whd/state/rest.htm#.UNCSyaxiK4s).
For information about the experiences of other companies with rest breaks and research on the general benefits of rest breaks, start with our General Business Resources guide at http://library.uhd.edu/business. Then choose “Business Source Complete.” Searched for “rest breaks” (with the quotation marks).
