Lunch Interrupted? You May Be Entitled To Overtime Pay

Many companies automatically deduct one hour of time each day for lunch and don't ask if you have taken the full hour or if you were asked to do work during your lunch or eat your lunch at your desk and do work requested by your boss.

These situations may run afoul of state and federal wage laws that require employers to compensate employees for all time worked, including all time when you are not completely relieved of your duties, and so employers who ask employees to work part of their lunch break, or make the employee eat lunch at their desk, may be liable for unpaid wages.

If your employer automatically deducts time for a meal break even when you do work or are not permitted to use the full time allotted, then you may be entitled to receive financial compensation and should call the employment lawyers of Alan Lescht and Associates, P.C., for a free consultation.
