Breaks are not optional extras.
They must be taken and cannot be withdrawn by your employer.
It's very important to take your breaks when they fall due because they are designed to give you a rest.
A break makes you efficient and better able to concentrate when you return to work.
-Michael Donovan, State Secretary
We all need breaks while we're at work. Our jobs are busy and demanding and there's always so much to do. Sometimes it feels as though we're doing the work of two or even three people.
