If you are worried that you are not receiving enough break time at work, read the following excerpt taken verbatim from Minnesota Department of Labor & Industry’s website.
“Minnesota state law requires employers to provide restroom time and sufficient time to eat a meal. If the break is less than 20 minutes in duration, it must be counted as hours worked. Time to use the nearest restroom must be provided within each four consecutive hours of work. Meal time applies to employees who work eight or more consecutive hours (see Minnesota Statutes 177.253, 177.254 and Minnesota Rules 5200.0120).”
