Subject : PAY ATTENTION ON BREAK TIME POLICY.
A report has proved that some of employees are taking longer breaks and lunch hours more than company policy. Policy and Planning Division has strongly recommended you to pay attention on following company policy.
Policy and Planning Division regulations require a minimum of a 30 minute uninterrupted meal period. This is scheduled for full-time employees and also applies to part-time employees who work more than a four-hour daily schedule. The employee must be away from their desk and free of duty for that period of time. The lunch time lasts from the time the employee leaves their work area until they return. The supervisor can approve maximum 45 minute lunch periods.
The 20-minute break period is optional for all employees as prayer time and others. Supervisors can request employees to skip a break period in order to meet operational needs of the office.
You are requested to follow these instructions strictly. If you have any query about this matter please contact at Policy and Planning Division.
Thanks much for your assistance.
