A rest break is a 10 minute paid break that counts as time worked.
A meal break is a 30 - 60 minute unpaid break that doesn't count as time worked.
An employee gets 1 rest break and 1 meal break each day. They can agree with their employer to take an extra unpaid rest break each day.
An employee who works for 5 hours or more must get at least 1 meal break.
The rest break has to be taken each morning.
The meal break has to be taken no later than five hours after starting work or at a time agreed to between the employer and employee.
Employees can't be asked to work more than 5 hours without a meal break.
When a meal break isn't given
If an employee is told to work during their meal break they have to be paid double time for the time they work until they get a meal break.
Breaks between shifts
Employees have to get a minimum break of 10 hours between finishing work on 1 day and starting work the next day. Work includes any reasonable additional hours or overtime.
This minimum break between shifts applies after the additional hours or overtime finish on that day.
If an employee doesn't get a break between shifts
When employees don't get a 10 hour break between shifts and they start at their normal shift time the next day they get paid the relevant overtime pay rate for the hours they work, until they are released from duty to have a 10 hour break between shifts.
