Another larger company gives their guys a set time. If the supervisor pulls up and people are standing around the crew leader is written up, and he can't use the excuse he's on break

My guys take lunch anywhere between 11:30a - 1p. If I pulled up at 10am and was told they were taking lunch I would laugh my a$$ off. That is why GPS tracking is also a good idea. If they are taking more breaks than allowed you are losing money and need to correct the issue.
