How is KFC able to work their employees 8 to 12 hours a shift without giving them a breaks or a meal time? Isn't that breaking the law?

Fast food is not required to give breaks if business dictates otherwise. Unless this has changed.

Yes u do get breaks. If u have any questions contact the department of labor in little rock. Any business has to give their employees breaks if u work over 4 hrs. But if the business is found at fault they could pay a fine.

Fast food does have to give you breaks. It is against the law not to give employees breaks if they are working more then 4 hours. If they don't they can get in BIG trouble for it.

It doesn't matter what they do because it will not be in business much longer with the nasty food they put out. They have the worst food bar ever!

That is a lie. I too have worked in fast food and in orentation they said that if you work 8 hours or more they have to give you a break. Because if they don't, they would have the labor after them.

actually there is no law in arkansas requiring breaks. If you were told they had to give breaks, it was company policy not state law.

Well finally someone posting that has some sense. Unless you are in a job where the responsibility of knowing these facts are relevant you people are just running your mouths. Read before you post!

http://www.labor.ar.gov/resources/Pages/faqs....

Q. Does my employer have to give me a meal break or other break?

A. Neither state nor federal wage and hour laws require an employer to provide a break or a meal period.(State law does require rest breaks for children under the age of 16 employed in the entertainment industry.) Rest periods for short duration, usually 20 minutes or less, are common in industry and promote efficiency. State and federal minimum wage and overtime laws require that these short periods be counted as hours worked and that covered employees be paid for the time. Bona fide meal periods (typically 30 minutes or more) generally need not be compensated as work time. The employee, however, must be completely relieved of duty during this time. If the employee is required to perform any duties, whether active or inactive, while eating, the meal period must be compensated as work time.

As I stated earlier. They are not required. As a former fast food manager I had the labor laws drilled into my head. I stated they could have changed but as you clearly pointed out I was correct.

YUCK!. This is VERY Disturbing - I haven't been to KFC in years -- This was sent to me so I'm just sharing the information.

KFC has been a part of our American traditions for many years. Many people, day in and day out, eat at KFC religiously. Do they really know what they are eating? During a recent study of KFC done at the University of New Hampshire, they found some very upsetting facts. First of all, has anybody noticed that just recently, the company has changed their name?

Kentucky Fried Chicken has become KFC. Does anybody know why? We thought the real reason was because of the "FRIED" food issue. It's not. The reason why they call it KFC is because they can not use the word chicken anymore.

Why?

KFC does not use real chickens. They actually use genetically manipulated organisms. These so called "chickens" are kept alive by tubes inserted into their bodies to pump blood and nutrients throughout their structure. They have no beaks, no feathers, and no feet. Their bone structure is dramatically shrunk to get more meat out of them.

This is great for KFC because they do not have to pay so much for their production costs. There is no more plucking of the feathers or the removal of the beaks and feet. The government has told them to change all of their menus so they do not say chicken anywhere. If you look closely you will notice this. Listen to their commercials, I guarantee you will not see or hear the word chicken.

I find this matter to be very disturbing. I hope people will start to realize this and let other people know. Please forward this message to as many people as you can. Together we make KFC start using real chicken again.

Only loud mouth I see here is you. The op asked a question and I gave him the correct answer. People like you decided I was incorrect because no source was given. Sorry I can't provide a link to my brain. So in the meantime remember when you don't know something google can be your friend.
