What You Need to Know About Lunch Break Laws and Unfair Bosses


What You Need to Know About Lunch Break Laws and Unfair Bosses

In today’s episode 13 of the MilMoney Movement Podcast, Lacey Langford and Hank Coleman are talking with Rob Wilson, the president of The Wilson Companies and a human resources guru. Wilson Companies is a human resource outsourcing company that helps businesses that do not have an HR department. Rob shares with us a topic that happens to many in the military community but it’s not talked about a lot, lunchtime judgment, and bosses that hold taking a lunch break against you. But, there are lunch break laws to help you.

Do you feel like your boss doesn’t think you work as hard if you take lunch? Or are you a boss that bases your impression of an employee’s work ethic on their lunchtime habits. We discuss The Tork Takes Back the Lunch Break survey that shows how employees and employers really feel about lunch breaks.

In this episode we discuss:

  • Your legal rights to breaks and lunch
  • Communication between bosses and employees
  • Problem resolution
  • When co-workers abuse breaks
  • The effects of not taking lunch or breaks on employees
