I don't know if Federal or Mass. State law would apply to my question.

For a contract worker (temp to perm) being paid through a recruiter / employment agency, can they work through breaks and lunch as long as they are paid for the time?

Does it depend upon how long the work day is? (9 as opposed to 8 hours)

The employee in question doesn't mind working through lunch and the Employer is happy to pay for the overtime, the concern seems to be how to account for the time so that the manager doesn't get in trouble for any violation of labor laws.

TIA,

~Cath

What does your timesheet look like?

On my timesheet, I just put the number of hours I worked, and that's it. I don't have to input any breaks or even when I showed up or leave. So if I work 7 hours between 7 and 3 or 7 hours between 11 and 7, it doesn't matter.

If your timesheet is more detailed and requires you to note breaks, the best person to speak with is the agency to whom you submit your timesheets about the best practices for something like this.
