hi i'm currently in a company, curious lang po ako kung may nilalabag po ba silang labor code dahil ang lunch break lang po namin ay "30 Minutes" at isa lang na "15 Minutes" break time sa hapon, ang pasok po namin ay Mon-Sat 8am-5pm, i hope na ma-enlighten nyo po ako regarding this... salamat!

ART. 85. Meal periods. - Subject to such regulations as the Secretary of Labor may prescribe, it shall be the duty of every employer to give his employees not less than sixty (60) minutes time-off for their regular meals.

30 mins is ok if it is paid break.

That may be feasible if agreed in your CBA or LMC. In my opinion, it is fair enough since your schedule is shortened. It is the same as having an hour break but going home at 5pm Smile

9 hours kayo pumapasok.. so ibig sabihin meron kayong 1 hour unpaid break..

kung 45 mins at dalawang 15 mins.. so ang total break nyo eh 1 hour and 15 mins.. so tama lang yun 1 hour unpaid and 15 mins paid break..

9 Lunch breaks on Thu Jun 14, 2018 12:42 pm

Hi. Helping out a friend.
Their previous company only allows their employees 3 thirty minutes break. No one-hour continuous lunch. No agreements were made. No overtime pay for the compensable break hour.. they reprimand employees going beyond 30 minutes of break. is that legal?

if it's a 8 hours straight shift, then yes, since the 30 minutes is considered a paid break. i.e. shift is 8-4, 6-2, 2-10, 10-6.

for a 9 hour shift, usually it has a 1 hour break. ie shift is 8-5 with 12-1 as the lunch break.

hope this helps
