Is your lunch break your own or does the boss get to tell you what you can and can’t do during it? Jesse Russell reports on a worker lawsuit over the issue.
AT&T technicians in Indiana have filed a lawsuit alleging that the company has put “heavy restrictions” on how they can spend their unpaid lunch breaks. The complaint says that while employees can spend unpaid lunch breaks eating in company vehicles, they aren’t allowed to read newspapers, nap, use personal computers, or listen to portable music players, such as iPods.
