meal and rests break example :
The schedule for meal periods should be established on the basis of work requirements in each office. Staggered meal periods may be necessary in customer service locations. Supervisors should make sure that each location is adequately staffed and that someone with authority to resolve minor problems is available at all times. Supervisors should allow employees to take at least 30 minutes and not more than one hour, for meals, depending on the needs of each office.
Two rest periods of 15 minutes each should be permitted each day. The schedule for these breaks should depend completely on the needs of each office. Rest periods are considered time worked, and employees will receive compensation for such periods.
