Yesterday when Hubby came home for his lunch break, 30 minutes into it his boss called him back to work, and was very unhappy that he even took a lunchbreak because one of the board members was down on job sites. My hubby works for the utility company doing water and sewer work. Then when he came in today, he got reprimanded because he failed to ask his boss "Am I done for the day, do you need me to stay?" WTH? He's never had to ask that. They are making him take a day off. Next tuesday. Isnt it illegal to not give your employees and hour lunch break? And even more so, to not pay them, especially overtime, when they do work through their lunch break? Its very rare that he ever gets his full hour, and maybe 2 days a week, he doesnt get a lunch break at all, yet they dont even pay him his regular wage for it. He's basically working for free. What can I do about this??Answer Question

It is illegal for them not to have an hour break, however it can be broken up into 30 minute lunch break and 2 15 minute breaks. Does he get payed by the hour or is he on salary? If he's a salary employee it doesn't matter how much overtime he works he will get payed the same. One good thing about salary though, is if he misses a day or two his pay check will still be the same. No missed money.
