Meal and Break Rules in Louisiana
Employers in Louisiana must comply with these state rules relating to meals and break times.
Louisiana does not have a general meal and break rule.
A minor may not be employed for any five-hour period without one interval of at least 30 minutes for meals. If the period of work before the interval exceeds five hours by less than 15 minutes, that difference is not a violation of this provision.
The interval may not be included as part of the working hours of the day.
