CoffeeBreak.jpegWorkplace Productivity: Coffee Breaks, Hiding in Bathroom to Kill Time
(Source: CalChamber)
In California, nonexempt employees are entitled to a 10-minute rest break for every four hours worked or “major fraction thereof,” as well as a 30-minute unpaid meal break if they work for more than five hours per day. A recent survey discovered what workers actually do on their work breaks and how productive they feel during the work day — and the results were interesting. While most people feel they’re working a solid eight-hour day, many often feel they have to “look busy” while working in the office — and a significant number of people admit to hiding in the bathroom. More details.
