@secretbee:

Oh, try to find another job before quitting.  You will not get unemployment -and I live in OR and have been trying to find a job since Jan.  Can you talk to a supervisor to get some temp help in??

I’m not familiar with the labor laws, but I thought all workers were entitled to a 30 min. break if the work day was six hours or more? How can you be exempt?

That’s awful! Hope you can find another job before leaving this one!!

I don’t see how that constitutes because under the “nature or circumstances of the work”?  But perhaps I’m not really getting what you’re doing?  I guess what I dont get is why you aren’t able to take a break?  If it’s just because no one else does or your boss prefers you not to…that’s not really relevant legally speaking.

Are you salary or an hourly worker? Are you getting paid for 11 hours or 8 hours?

I know how you feel.  The laws for breaks don’t apply to small businesses under 50 employees in CT, so there are days I don’t get a break either and it sucks not to be able to do anything about it.
