A: You should contact a Kentucky employment attorney to discuss your situation in greater detail. Generally, break periods of 20 minutes or less constitute paid time. In addition, if you are being treated differently than other employees based on your disability and accommodation request, this can raise additional issues under the Americans with Disabilities Act.
