    depends where she works, each industry has its own award that governs breaks etc. Pretty much though ......

     

    > 4hours = 15 mins break

    > 5 hours = meal break usually 1/2 hr

    Not sure if different depending on age, but place where I work I do 5 hours and apparently that's the maximum you are allowed to do without having to have a lunch break. Generally breaks are not paid breaks.

    10 mins smokeo depending on the award, this is paid and 1/2 hour lunch unpaid, but some places allow 1hr, it depends again on the award

    It will depend on the industry and the award that is tied to, normally a break must be taken of no less that 30 minutes after 5 hours.

    To answer more specific i would need to know the Industry and then i can interpret the Award.

    It's whatever the boss says - and if you complain, or try to stir up trouble it's likely you'll be sacked for something completely unrelated!
