Breastfeeding; Break and Rest Periods in the Workplace

by Tim Anderson

Breaks and Rest Periods:

  • For Adults – Utah has enacted no statute requiring employers to provide breaks and rest periods to adult employees.
  • For Minors – An employer must provide a paid 10–minute rest period after no more than four (4) hours of work, and cannot prohibit a minor from taking a requested break every three (3) hours. An employer must provide a 30–minute meal period after no more than five (5) hours of work.

Breastfeeding: Employers should be aware that a woman may breastfeed in any place where women otherwise may rightfully be.
