Employers must allow their employees a meal period of reasonable length as close to the middle of their shift as possible. The meal break must be scheduled to come no less than 3 hours or more than 5 hours after the start of a shift. This rule does not negate any provision of a collective bargaining agreement or mutual agreement between the employee and employer (Ky. Rev. Stat. § 337.355). Employees are entitled to a paid rest period lasting at least 10 minutes for every 4 hours worked (Ky. Rev. Stat. § 337.365). More information is available at the Kentucky rest periods section.
