UFIT recognizes that employees work better and enjoy their work more when they are rested and refreshed.

  • During each four hours that you work, you are permitted a 15-minute rest period whenever possible. When an employee goes on rest break, the employee does not need to clock in and clock out since it is considered time worked.
  • During this period, we encourage you to leave your workstation and relax. Your supervisor will advise you of particular arrangements necessary for breaks in your department.
  • Rest-period time may not be accumulated for later use that is, to extend your lunch hour, arrive late, or leave early. You also may not combine breaks to allow a half-hour break or prolong a lunch period during an eight-hour shift.
