Is there any information regarding Indiana lunch or breaks laws?

In general, Indiana law does not require employers to provide adult employees lunch breaks or other breaks. Indiana law does require employers to provide teenage workers breaks under some circumstances.

Indiana employers must provide a child less than eighteen (18) years of age one (1) or two (2) rest breaks totaling at least thirty (30) minutes if the child is scheduled to work at least six (6) consecutive hours. The Indiana Code concerning Child Labor may be viewed at: http://www.in.gov/legislative/ic/code/title20/ar33/ch3.html .

If you have questions regarding Indiana's child labor laws, you may contact the Indiana Department of Labor at 317-232-2655 or by e-mail at childlabor@dol.in.gov  .

Federal laws may also govern breaks. Information on federal laws and regulations concerning breaks can be viewed at http://www.dol.gov/dol/topic/workhours/breaks.htm  or by calling the US Department of Labor at 317-226-6801.
