There are none, that I am aware of. As long as you are paid for your time, no law, federal or state mandates break times.

Absent child labor laws coming into play, i am not aware of any NJ law requiring lunch breaks (though lunch breaks could be a "reasonable accommodation" under federal and/or state disability law if necessitated by a disability).
