  1. can you please make me clear about tea break who entitled the tea break is it company or workers

    1. Reply to Nomusa: In terms of the Basic Conditions of Employment Act there is only a right to a meal interval, not a tea break. It is up to the employer to decide whether to grant tea breaks. However, some Sectoral Determinations and Bargaining Council Agreements do make provision for tea breaks.

    1. Reply to Nadarajan: The BCEA deals only with meal intervals. Tea breaks and smoke breaks may be agreed in the the employment contract or are governed by company policy or internal rules.
