Employees are entitled to:
- one 10-minute paid rest break when they work between two and four hours
- one 10-minute paid rest break and one unpaid 30-minute meal break when they work more than four and up to six hours
- two 10-minute paid rest breaks and one unpaid 30-minute meal break when they work more than six and up to eight hours.
These requirements begin over again if an employee works more than eight hours.
Employers must provide appropriate breaks and facilities for employees with babies who wish to breastfeed or express breast milk, where this is reasonable and practicable. These are unpaid breaks unless the employer agrees otherwise.
