Meal Breaks (M.G.L. c. 149, ss. 100-101)

Employers, with some exceptions, must provide at least a 30-minute unpaid meal break to those employees working more than six hours in a day. If the employee's movement is restricted during the meal break or if the employee is required to perform any job function during the break, he must be paid for the meal period.
