It depends what you want to do. You can pay employed staff lunch breaks/breaks but generally there is a reason why you would do this. If hours are changed. I have an example. One of my staff worked two mornings a week I wanted them to work one whole day a week, by changing the hours it left an hour short so I suggested instead of losing money I would pay her the hours lunch break - but this is me, morally I thought is was correct...and lets face it what is there to argue about for one hour! I was happy to pay it and she was happy to change the hours for it. win win.

As a rule breaks are not paid and are stated as such in an employee contract but there is no hard and fast rule for this.

Lol I asked myself the same question. I live off cuppa soups and foxs mints to keep me going.

In my old old job I was always paid for my breaks& lunch, which I would always be around for, cleaning, on reception etc etc, it was never really a break but I was happy with that as I was being paid so it was only fair, I didn't want to take the Micky.
My last job was unpaid lunch & no breaks, I was out of the building as soon as the clock struck 12 and was no where to be seen until the clock struck 1, I wasn't being paid to be there so fully ensured I wasn't there lol (I hated the job so that was probably the main reason I disappeared at lunch lol) but it did make me reflect and think It was really kind of my first job to pay for my breaks and I did really appreciate it an I think I actually worked harder for them (again maybe because I hated my old job). I would rather not take a lunch break and finish early in all honesty so it did peeve me when I got made to take an hour unpaid lunch everyday :)
(By the way both the above jobs were office jobs not beauty related) by just my thoughts from an employee side :D xxxxx

It's my view that I pay for a full days work, the girls rarely leave the salon for lunch ( other than to buy it ) some days they don't get a break, others they are quiet.

When I was employed in a salon I wasn't paid for my lunch break. If I worked through it I would have to claim overtime.
