Spread of hours is defined as the interval between the beginning and end of an employee’s workday. The spread of hours for any day includes working time plus time off for meals plus intervals off duty.

    For example—employee works 9:00 a.m.–8:30 p.m. including a one hour unpaid lunch and two 15-minute paid breaks. Employee will be paid for 10 ½ hours and an additional one hour “spread of hours” pay at the minimum wage rate.
