Question/Topic: What is the law regarding rest breaks during an 8-hour work day? 
Answer/Pointer: Florida law and federal law do not require rest breaks for employees over the age of 18. Breaks, however, may be negotiated by labor organizations or may be part of a contract. Should you have further questions, the Department of Labor and Employment Security has a toll-free hotline for questions on Florida labor law. You can reach that hotline at 800-342-3450. For questions on federal labor law call 800-347-1997.
