Hey, anyone that works at Tim Horton's...the one that I work at makes us punch out for 20 minutes if you are over 18 on your break.

I was wondering (as I have heard) if we are supposed to be getting paid for those 20 minutes or not?

Please let me know!

The one I used to work at makes people time out for two 15 minute breaks, but they're paid breaks. It's just to make sure the breaks aren't too long.

It depends on the owner. We used to have unpaid breaks, but now, since they adopted a no smoking policy, they are paid breaks.

We have a 30 min unpaid break that we have to take. So, really, we only get 7 and a half hour workdays.

This. But in NYS, if you work more than 6 consecutive hours in a day, you have to get at least a half hour break. Ours was unpaid.

all depends on where you are working [ie what your legislature is for hours worked and all that]. google it and see what the rules are for where you are.

in ontario, on an 8 hour shift [minimum] you get an hour meal break unpaid and two 15 breaks that are paid by law. if your shift is 5 hours you get a half hour break that is paid, 4 hours a 15 paid, under 3 hours nothing. if you have over an 8 hour shift it gets a bit grey because you are technically working overtime then but it doesn't start changing until you have worked 10 hours straight. these rules only apply to hourly employees not management/salary as well.

My daughter own a restauarnt in Ontario and employees, according to the Ministry of Labour laws receive one 1/2 break when working 5 hours or more, Whether it is paid or unpaid is up to the employer. You can split that into two 15 minute breaks if the employee agrees to it. Working 5 hours or less, no break is required.

Well, 5 hours or less=no break. Anything over is 20 minutes for people over 18, and 30 for minors.
Unpaid:/

I read in the manual that they are supposed to be paid breaks if they are 20 mins or under...but they make us punch out anyway
