First off, I"m new to FedX. As a courier who does pick ups, if I work too efficient and get to a PU stop 20 minutes before the ready time, I am instructed to "take a break". Now I have nothing against breaks, but if I'm not getting paid for it, I am against it. I've never worked at a company that tells you to what amounts to "getting off the clock" while you are working. Don't get me wrong, I have worked for many companies that told to take a break when things got slow. Even in the fast food world of my youth, if the counter slowed down, you were instructed to take a break. But these were PAID breaks! Is this practice of making you get off the clock even legal?
