2,301: Rest Period

Last Revised: August 2005

A 15 minute rest period must be provided to each classified employee during each four hour work period.

In offices employing more than one classified employee, the break may be arranged on a rotating basis so that one person remains in the office to receive callers and answer the telephone. It is strongly suggested that rest breaks be taken in close proximity to the employee's work area. A total of 15 minutes only is to be taken for each break.

Appointing officials may modify the conditions of the work break in those areas where special arrangements must be made (such as University Police, Buildings and Grounds, etc.) due to the nature or condition of the work.
