Employees must be allowed a 30-minute unpaid rest break or meal period if scheduled to work 6 consecutive hours. The break may not be scheduled earlier than 1 hour after the employee began working. This requirement does not apply if the nature of the business creates a work environment that provides for ample opportunity to rest or to take appropriate breaks (Tenn. Stat. § 50-2-103). Details and waiver information are available at the Tennessee rest periods section.
