Give me a break
Q: Is our doctor legally required to provide us with a break room?
However, you may be able to offer some compelling reasons for your veterinarian to provide you with a separate space for breaks. For example, she says, if you're a nonexempt employee and you're not paid for lunch time, it's easier for you to follow the law and take a break if your boss provides a break room. And OSHA regulations limit what you can store in a refrigerator that contains medications, so it may be better for the doctor to offer a separate space in a break room for employees to store their lunches.
