Meal Period Laws According to State

The FLSA has no meal period requirement, but 21 U.S. states or other jurisdictions have meal period requirements; seven of those (California, Colorado, Kentucky, Minnesota, Nevada, Oregon, and Washington) also have rest periods requirements. Meal periods for minor workers are mandated in 35 states or territories. For a comparison of all states' meal and rest period laws, check out this page at the DOL's website.
