What are employee rights in Texas concerning lunch?

There is considerable discussion of lunch rights.


Answer by  NicoleT (23)

The employee rights when it comes to having a lunch break is that a person who is scheduled to work 6 hours or more is entitled to a thirty minute unpaid lunch. If it is under the 6 hours you get a fifteen minute break.

Federal law does not require lunch or coffee breaks be given. Most employers give them to be nice and make sure the quality of work is good. However, if your employer does give you a break they are required to pay you for that time. Paying for break time the company provides is the law.

You have a right to a break after 3 1/2 hours of work in a six hour or longer shift. There is no right that it be a paid break.
