New York Labor Law § 162 requires that employees working in New York receive unpaid meal periods that meet the minimum standards set forth in the chart below:
|Six hour shift extending over the “noonday meal period” of 11:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m.||At least a 30 minute meal period between 11:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m.|
|Shift beginning before 11:00 a.m. and ending after 7:00 p.m||At least an additional 20 minute meal period between 5:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m.|
|Six hour shift between 1:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m.||At least a 45 minute meal period at a time midway between the beginning and end of the shift|
*During the meal period the employee must be completely relieved from duty for the purpose of eating a meal. It is not necessary that the employee leave the premises if he or she is otherwise completely freed from duties during the meal period. The employee is not considered “relieved from duty” if he or she is required to perform any duties, whether active or inactive, while eating.
