Section 10-9 Breaks

(1) An employee shall have at least one break if the daily working hours exceed five hours and 30 minutes. The breaks shall collectively amount to at least 30 minutes if the daily working hours total at least eight hours. When the employee is not free to leave the workplace during the break or where there is no satisfactory break room, the break shall be regarded as part of the working hours. When conditions so necessitate, the break may be postponed.

(2) When an employee works more than two hours after normal working hours, the employee shall be allowed a break of at least 30 minutes. The break is regarded as part of the working hours. Breaks which come after the end of ordinary working hours shall be subject to remuneration as overtime but shall not be included in the number of hours it is permitted to work overtime pursuant to section 10-6. When conditions so necessitate, the break may be reduced or postponed.
