I work retail my previous employer had strict rules about lunches. For example if you came into work before 10 you must take your lunch before 1:25 they said this was New York State law. My new employers had me work 8 to 5 the other day and did not give me a lunch until 3 just curious if there breaking a law or my previous employer was wrong?

If you work more than five hours you must have a half-hour minimum lunch.
