Therefore, even on a 12 hour shift, you would still only be legally entitled to ONE rest break. ... Young workers are entitled to a rest break of 30 minutes for every 4 and a half hours they work. There is also no legal requirement to pay you for your break nor for it to count towards the length of your working day.
