  • Mercantile or other types of employees
  • 6 hour shift or longer which includes the time frame between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m.—½ hour meal break
  • Work shift begins before 11 a.m. and ends after 7 p.m.–an additional 20 minute meal break is required between the hours of 5 p.m. and 7 p.m.
  • 6 hour shift or longer which begins between 1 p.m. and 6 a.m.–45 minute meal break
