Q. I was just hired into a role where I was told I am eligible for paid overtime (at time and one-half) after I work 40 hours. However, no one has mentioned lunch breaks. How does this work when an employee regularly works more than 8 hours per day? Do I get a lunch break? Is it paid or unpaid? Everyone working in this office seems to eat at their desk and work through lunch.
Shift workers must receive meal break
