We have offices in 13 states, a headquarters in Iowa and a manufacturing facility in Alaska. Several employees have used our “open suggestion box” to request that we allow them to work through lunch so they can go home earlier. I am aware of California’s unique laws which require that non-exempt employees be offered meal periods of at least 30 minutes during which they are relieved of all duty. I am assuming this is applicable to California only. Are short lunch periods a problem in any other states? Answer→
