Unfortunately, this newsletter does not contain good news for Georgia’s employers and Insurers. The Supreme Court has dealt a final blow to the scheduled rest break defense, leaving it essentially ineffective absent the most narrow of circumstances.    

As is always the case, prepared employers are ever-adapting to changing conditions within our comp system and this ruling should cause us to rethink the manner in which we handle employee breaks and “free time”.
