Working Lunch Agreement

Coffee breaks for vendors are 35 minutes a day based on day work and 15 minutes for office workers, that`s paid time. Coffee breaks can be reduced or terminated in the workplace by appointment and working time is reduced accordingly. If you work part-time, you should take a proportional coffee break. Breaks in workers` working time in grocery stores It seems you have to break the bad news about lunch breaks to your employees. Maybe the topic will help them.
