Rest Periods

Employees are permitted one rest period not to exceed 15 minutes during each half-day (four hours) of work. Rest periods are scheduled by the supervisor and are to be taken at a time and in a manner that does not interfere with the efficiency of the work unit. The rest period is intended to be a recess that is preceded and followed by an extended work period. Thus, a rest period may not be used to cover late arrival to work, early departure, or extended lunch break, nor may it be accumulated if not taken.
