Meal and Break Rules in North Dakota
Employers in North Dakota must comply with these state rules relating to meals and break times.
In North Dakota, a 30-minute uninterrupted time period for meals must be provided on each shift of work exceeding five hours, when there are two or more employees on duty.
Employees do not have to be paid for meal periods if they are completely relieved of their duties and the meal period is ordinarily 30 minutes in length.
Collective bargaining agreements prevail over this provision.
