Accurate Time Tracking Is So Much Easier With Workyard
For both employers and employees, a construction worker’s lunch break is a valuable necessity. Employees who work without taking a break aren’t effective, productive, or safe.
Unfortunately, break time can also be a serious headache for company owners and managers.
You’ve probably already experienced the following issues:
How can you make sure that your employees aren’t just taking their breaks but also logging them?
Some states, like California, have very specific laws about when workers must be given a break, while other states are more flexible. Let’s take a look at construction workers break laws by state.
The best way to make sure you are compliant with the law is to check with your state’s labor department website.
Did You Know?
Workyard helps you manage your construction workers’ breaks by automatically alerting them when they need to take one. Hours worked and break time are accurately logged within the app, providing the necessary paper trail to ensure that your employees are taking their breaks on time.
Now that you know the law, it’s time to start thinking about how you can manage your construction workers’ break time. Here are a few tips to get you started:
Make sure your employees know what is expected of them during their break time. If you want them to take a specific number of breaks, or if there are certain activities that are not allowed, it should all be written in your employee manual.

As an employer, it’s your responsibility to make sure your employees are taking breaks. In construction, an employee not taking breaks can be dangerous for everyone. Workyard provides detailed and accurate reports to analyze employee break time and productivity.
Break times shouldn’t be complicated. With an accurate time clock app, it doesn’t have to be.
If you’re looking for a way to streamline the break time process, Workyard can help. Workyard makes it easy to track hours worked, location, and break time—complete with a built-in break timer that can remind your employees when it’s time to take a break.
