I don't have the worst job in the world. But I've had to deal with people calling in and being on shift by myself. Never was too big of a deal, but now that I'm 31 weeks, it's quite trying. I came home in tears today because there was no one to call in, (even just to cover a half an hour so I could eat/sit down). I'm in so much pain. I think I'm going to contact the labor board of KY, to see if there's anything I can do. I want out of my job anyway, but right now I need the money and don't have many options. If I quit, because of the unacceptable circumstances, do I remotely qualify for unemployment? I need help, I'm tired of taking shit. This is the fourth time in a month that I've been by myself and not been able to sit down/drink or eat for eight hours. Advice??Answer Question

Each state has different laws for break requirements, so you may not be able to do anything about that. Check your state's labor laws. What you can do is get your doctor to write you a note saying it is medically necessary for you to sit and eat every 4 hours. Also, check your company's employee handbook on guidelines for breaks. If it has a policy stating that you get 30 minutes while working an 8 hour shift, contact the corporate human resources department. I've been there, I feel for you!
