Q: Must nonexempt employees enter the time they leave and return from lunch, or can we assume that they took their lunch hours unless otherwise noted in their time records?

A: The Fair Labor Standards Act doesn’t require employers to give meal breaks. If you give meal breaks, always exercise caution when making assumptions. You should have a procedure to allow employees to alert you when they don’t take their meal breaks.
