I started working at Logan's and work many hours so far, but they are not giving their employees any breaks or lunches, does anyone know the Kentucky Labor Laws? I am almost sure that if you work 6 hrs you are due at least a half hour lunch and if you work 8 hrs you are due 2-15 mnute breaks. How can they get by with this and how long do they expect to keep employees like that?

QUIT, somebody else will work the hours. It takes at least a month to stablize the workforce and service always sucks until thennnnnnnnn

I may not have it exact, but I believe for 8 hours you get at least 2 10 minute breaks(most places let you have 15) and a 30 minute lunch.
From what I hear the Labor board doesnt do much for employees.
I know someone who has talked to people who have called them for various reasons and basically they are pushed away and not much help given.
Sadly in this day and time alot of employeers know most of us are desperate for a paycheck and they will work someone to death just to make a buck and not worry about the employee.

6 hours = 1 15 minute break. Or at least that's what they give at Kroger. If you work between 6-8 hours you get 2 15 minute breaks. Over 8 hours is a1/2 lunch and 2 15 minute breaks.
pay for it/go for it

It is the law that they OFFER you your breaks. And smoking is not allowed so you must clock out and drive away, in which you are not paid for. Go back to school If you are unhappy in your situation. Later!

I looked up the labor laws
Am I entitled to a rest period, and do I get paid for this time?
You are entitled to a rest period of at least ten (10) minutes during each four hours you work. The rest period is a paid break.

Am I entitled to a meal period, and do I get paid for this time?
You are entitled to a reasonable period for a meal no sooner than the third nor later than the fifth hour of your work shift unless you and your employer have mutually agreed to some other arrangement. A duty-free meal period does not have to be paid.

thanks to those of you that were kind and not giving me a hard way to go. after all it was just a question!

There are so many nasty people in this town. Manners are not something they were raised with. Just ignore those morons. I have seen some pretty silly post in this place and this was not one of them. Some jerks just talk ugly to make themselves feel better....Frankfort home of some of the biggest jackasses ;) Good luck on your new job!!!

Your employer is also required to have a poster containing these laws posted in a conspicuous place accessible by all employees. Usually in break rooms or by time clocks. I bet you have one that you never bothered to read.
