Air expects our employees to work hard to provide the quality service it takes
to satisfy customers. In support of your efforts, ABX Air supplies employees
with reasonable meal and break periods.
|This policy applies to all hourly and non-exempt,
non-bargaining unit employees.
|Employees who are scheduled to work at least eight hours
per day are eligible for an unpaid meal period and two paid 15-minute breaks.
|Employees who are scheduled to work at least six hours per
day are eligible for a paid 15-minute paid break.
|Employees working in states that require meal periods and
breaks will receive them in compliance with their state laws.
|The duration of meal periods typically will be 30, 45, or
60 minutes, as determined by each department based on operational need.
|It may not always be possible to provide breaks and meal
periods to all employees every day. As a service business, we understand that
service to our customers will sometimes require us to work through breaks or
meals. Conversely, employees may periodically request to leave early by
working through their lunch periods. Unless this is prohibited by state law,
supervisors will attempt to meet this request on an exception basis.
|Schedule breaks and meal periods with your supervisor.
|Clock in and out for lunch periods.
|Make customer service a priority and be willing to delay or
miss breaks and meals when time constraints require it.
|Managers and supervisors will try to provide reasonably
timed breaks and meal periods to employees every day.
|Managers will be aware of applicable laws regarding meals
and breaks, and will provide all legally mandated meal periods and breaks
