A class action has been filed against fast food giant McDonald’s following allegations the company failed to provide its Australian employees with paid 10-minute breaks.

Shine Lawyers filed the action on behalf of McDonald’s staff, alleging staff were not given their entitled 10-minute paid breaks for shifts lasting between four and nine hours, as well as two paid 10-minute breaks for shifts that last nine hours or longer. As required under

Under both the McDonald’s Australian Enterprise Agreement 2013 and the Fast Food Industry Award 2010, these paid 10-minute breaks are protected by law.

The class action follows a decision by the Federal Court on August 31, 2020, that found former employee Chiara Staines was not provided with paid 10-minute rest breaks when working shifts four hours or longer.

Ms Staines was awarded the value of her lost rest breaks in addition to compensation for loss of amenity.
