Legal Answers
10 Questions Answered
Q. Is it illegal that my employer is purposely scheduling me 6 hour shifts on certain days so she doesn’t haveto givebreaks
A: It is unfortunate that your employer will not voluntarily honor your request. Because you do not work more than six hours in a shift, your employer can require you to work the shift without a meal break. Here is NY State DOL statement on the issue. "Employers in New York State must provide all employees time off for meals, after working a certain number of hours. In general, Employers must provide at least 30 minutes of unpaid time off if an employee works more than 6 hours." Here is a link to the DOL Fact Sheet on the issue. Good luck.
Q. Is it required my employer give me a break during my 6 hour shift? I work usually 8 hours most days NYS.
A: The break is only required when a shift is more than six hours. Since your shift is exactly six hours, no break is required. The applicable statute is NYLL 162(2).
Q. If I left early one day and I did not tell my boss. She said it was okay But now she is not trying to pay me…
A: Your employer is required to pay you for all time you actually worked. If you are an hourly employee- they must pay you for all hours worked. If you are an exempt salaried employee, they must pay your salary.
