Here is the Colorado wage law. The issue is does the nature of your business activity make an uninterrupted meal period impractical? I can't answer that, but call the Division of Labor at the number listed below and they will be able to provide the correct response.
"Breaks and Meal Periods
For individuals covered under Colorado Minimum Wage Order Number 26, the following rules apply. For more information on coverage, please contact the Division of Labor at 303-318-8441.
Employees shall be entitled to an uninterrupted and 'duty free' meal period of at least a thirty minute duration when the scheduled work shift exceeds five consecutive hours of work. The employees must be completely relieved of all duties and permitted to pursue personal activities to qualify as a non-work,uncompensated period of time. When the nature of the business activity or other circumstances exist that makes an uninterrupted meal period impractical, the employee shall be permitted to consume an “on-duty” meal while performing duties. Employees shall be permitted to fully consume a meal of choice “on the job” and be fully compensated for the “on-duty” meal period without any loss of time or compensation.
Deductions For Meals
The reasonable cost or fair market value of meals provided to the employee may be used as part of the minimum hourly wage. No profits to the employer may be included in the reasonable cost or fair market value of such meals furnished. The meal must be consumed before deductions are permitted."
