What Paid Breaks Am I Entitled to?

Answer

Most workers have the right to take breaks, but whether or not you are paid for them depends on the terms of your employment contract. There are three types of breaks, rest breaks, daily breaks and weekly rests. The second and third types of break are almost never paid unless you have to remain 'on call', meaning you are available to work while the first type is often paid, but doesn't have to be unless your contract says so.
