YES Inc. Policy allows all employees two 15 minute breaks during each work day. Each break should be taken approximately half way through a 4 hour work period. Breaks are not cumulative and employees cannot save them to use at the end of the day.

While some employees may not want to take a break from their work, YES Inc. Administration wants to ensure that all team member takes the breaks.

All employees must take at least a 1hour lunch break after approximately 5 hours of work.

NOTE: Although an employee may prefer to stay at their desk and handle some personal business, it is best for employees to leave their work areas during a work break. Individuals tend to do personal business or make personal phone calls at their desk and other employees or individuals visiting the work area do not perceive the person is on a break. Instead a perception is created that employees do personal tasks during work time.
