What minimum hours must an employee work to receive the 10-minute paid rest break? We are in the farming industry.
The rest break will be determined by the terms of the award. You have put farming as your industry, so assuming the Pastoral Award 2010 applies, there is no minimum number of hours that must be worked for the paid 10-minute rest break, it just has to be provided sometime in the morning.
