Speak to your manager about this. That's the only way to know for sure.

This generally how break times are worked out for staff in any workplace in UK.


It does depend on the hours you work. I work 2*8 hours shifts a week in supermarket I only get 30 minutes. So I think you won't get any due to only working 3 hours shift but it will depends on m&s rules etc on this.

**************************************************
Am I entitled to a break on a 4 hour shift......
You have a right to: A 15 minute break when you have worked more than 4 ½ hours. A 30 minute break when you have worked more than 6 hours, which can include the first 15-minute break.
***************************************************

If you work between 4 - 5 hours you don't get a break but see above.
If you work more than 5 hours you get 15 mins
If you work more than 6 hours you would get 15-20 mins
If you work 8 hours of more you get 30 mins
If you work 9 hours or more you get 45 mins ( split into 1 30 min break & 1 15 min break)
If you work 11 hours of more you get 60 mins (split into 2 30 min breaks)

No. You by law need to work 6 hours before you are entitled to a break.

Legal break entitlements depend upon your employment status (worker, zero-hours etc.), age, contract and a number of other factors.

You can determine your entitlement here: https://www.citizensadvice.org.uk/wo...work-overview/
