Meal Break Disputes in Nebraska

According to Nebraska labor law, all employers must provide a lunch break of 30 minutes after a shift of at least 8 hours to employees who work in workshops, mechanical environments, and assembling plants.

For those who work in offices or businesses, employers are allowed to decide lunch and break periods, no matter how long the shift is. Nebraska follows federal law if an employer chooses to provide additional breaks lasting less than 20 minutes. Breaks like this are paid. Meal periods that last 30 or more minutes do not need to be paid.
