Rest Periods
National Summary
The Fair Labor Standards Act does not require rest or meal periods, except as amended under the Affordable Care Act for nursing mothers, but it does set standards for when work breaks, including meal periods, rest periods, and sleeping time, must be counted as paid work time. The laws of some states do require that paid and/or unpaid rest and meal periods must be provided.
