Meal and Break Rules in Michigan

Filed under Office & HR.

Employers in Michigan must comply with these state rules relating to meals and break times.

Michigan does not have a general meal and rest period law.

Michigan's Youth Employment Standards Act has provisions for meal and rest periods. In Michigan, a minor may not be employed for more than five hours continuously without an interval of at least 30 minutes for a meal and rest period.

An interval of less than 30 minutes is not considered to interrupt a continuous period of work.
