Q: 

Are 15 min breaks [besides lunch break] a right or privilage?

A:  You''ll have to check with your local labor board. its a law They are labor law. In my country, it is mandated by law. Depends on the type of establishment you work for. Is there a union? Need to read the union contract. Are you in the manufacturing industry? Then 15 minute breaks are normally required to complete a one hour lunch break if they break it up (1/2 hour then 15 - 15).

Q: 

15 minute pay

A:  A village ordinance cannot supercede state and federal labor laws. The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA)says you must be paid for all the time you are at work and that includes asking the employee to come to work 15 minutes early or stay 15 minutes late. There is a big lawsuit going on right now with Walmart because they were doing that and they are in a lot of hot water because of it. The Fair Labor Standards Act can be found on the Department of Labor website at: http://www.dol.gov/esa/whd/regs/compliance/whdfs22.pdf Above are the regulations that say all time even waiting and working after shifts must be...

Q: 

Can your employer tell you what to eat on a 15 min, break, if you don''t take a lunch hour and work 7 hours?

A:  What to eat? No. Are you kidding? No. Is your employer providing your meals? If so then yes they can in fact limit what you eat. Your employer cannot tell you what to eat on a 1 min break, a 15 min break, a 30 min lunch or a 1 hour lunch. It is none of their business and violates your personal rights. They do have to give you a lunch break if you work over 6 hours and it must be a minimum of 30 mins. Your boss in insane. He can''t make you eat anything unless your job is a food tester. If he is supplying the meal then he can decide what to supply but you don''t have to eat it....

Q: 

If a 15 and an 18 year old in new york state have sex, will they be breaking the law?

A:  No, they would not be breaking the law. All the fools who say it''s 18 have no clue what they are talking about. You''re right that the legal AoC is 17 in NY. In many states, like FL where I''m a resident, there is an exception. In FL it states that if the elder of the two is under 24, then the legal age is 16, whereas if the elder is 24 or older, then the legal age is 18. In other states, there is a 4 year proximity exception. According to the official website, anyone under the age of 17 is legally unable to consent. Anyone violating this would be charged with sexual assault in the 3rd degree. However, it is an "affirmative defense" if the younger person is greater than 14, and the older person is within...

Q: 

My boss has changed my hours many, many times. Now, she has made me go hourly instead of salery. I only get a 30 min break. Is there a law that I get a 15 am break and a 15 pm break? Please inform. When I take my lunch break I don''t have to clock out

A:  If you work a regular eight hour shift, forty hours in a seven day work period, by law, you allowed a fifteen minute break twice a day, plus thirty minutes for lunch. Your boss appears to be circumventing the federal law. you can find a copy of this law under US Government.com. If you''re in the United states, there are Federal Wage and Hour laws and also state Wage and Hour laws. The one providing the most benefit to the employee is the one that takes presidence. Federal Law requires two paid 10 minute breaks in an 8 hour shift, plus an unpaid half hour

Q: 

I was arrested for a DUI charge in MI with a 0.11 BAC (limit being 0.08 BAC). The police officer wrote on the ''breath, blood, urine test report'' that the incident time was 2:27 AM and the arrest time was 2:14 AM (I believe he meant to reverse the two so that the incident time was 2:14 AM and the arrest time was 2:27 AM). On the citation, the police also wrote 2:14 AM. Since MI DUI law requires an officer to visually observe a drunk driving suspect for 15 minutes prior to the administration of a breath test...isn''t that potentially grounds for something?

A:  A good starting point is to obtain the bookingroom video tape to ensure that the officer complied with the 15- minute observation period AR ...(1) (e). But even then, recent caselaw suggests that violations of the 15-minute rule goes to weight and not admissability inasmuch. Of course, this can be challenged through motion and evidentiary hearing to suppress and/or dismiss. www.oaklandcountydefenseattorney.com...

Q: 

7 1/2 hour day: 20 minute break paid or unpaid?

A:  This is because his employer chooses to offer this, not because the law requires it. No state requires an hour long meal break. Federal regulations have determined that 20 minutes is generally the shortest period of time that can qualify as a bona fide meal period. So no, a 20-minute break does not have to be paid....

Q: 

In California does a Employer have to pay the Employee for a Bathroom Break if they already give you two ten minute breaks and a lunch break?

A:  There currently isn't a law that an employer must pay for a bathroom break. California law states that employers must pay for mandatory 10 minute breaks for every 4 hours worked, so if you work an 8 hour shift, you are required to take two 10 minute breaks and must be paid for them. Employers also must provide a 30 minute meal break if an employee works more than 5 hours. Another way of looking at it is that you are paid for 8 hours of work but actually are only required to work 7 hours and 10 minutes. It would seem to me that humans aren't always able to time their bathroom needs with scheduled break times...
