    Meals and Breaks




          Mississippi does not have any laws requiring an employer to provide a meal period or breaks to employees, thus the federal rule applies. The federal rule does not require an employer to provide either a meal (lunch) period or breaks. However, if an employer chooses to do so, breaks, usually of the type lasting less than twenty (20) minutes, must be paid. Meal or lunch periods (usually thirty (30) minutes or more) do not need to be paid, so long as the employee is free to do as they wish during the meal or lunch period.



    Maybe it should allow for only 5 minutes. They just "don't get it!" http://www.gallup.com/poll/167642/mississippians-obese-montanans-least-obese.aspx  ""
