We have a small to medium size lawn care operations. It is husband/wife owned and over the years we have grown. We now have 4 employees that work either part- or full-time. I wanted to get information on how others in similar situations handle "break-times"? For instance: - Do you make them take a mandatory 15 minute break and deduct their pay? - Do you just deduct 15 mintues for down time throughout the work day? - Do you pay them if they start at 7:30 and work through 5 PM? Assumming no break times? Right now, we are on the honor system and they write down if they take a break or not. Since I do the payroll each week, I can say it is few and far between when anyone is writing down a break. I would like some thoughts because I know that there is some cost I would like to take out. Thanks!
