Breaks to be part of total working hours

Breaks to be part of total working hours

Break time during work should be considered as part of the total working hours, in order to achieve a better work/life balance. Many studies have shown the benefits of a shorter working day for both the employee in terms of an improved work-life balance (hence less stress) and for the employer in terms of better productivity (less stress equals increased productivity). A good break is necessary to continue working a whole day, therefore this should be paid and part of the 8 hour working day.
