Minors under the age of 18 are entitled to a 30-minute break for each shift of 6 hours or more. The break may be scheduled at the convenience of the employer, but must occur after the first 11/2 hours of work and before the beginning of the last hour of work. A minor who works 5 consecutive hours without a break may take a 30-minute break before continuing work. This provision may be modified on occasion by employer and employee or by the terms of a collective bargaining agreement (AK Stat. Sec. 23.10.350).
