I work security in a foreign trade zone in Tennessee, and I have noticed several things that I find quite unusual about the company I work for. Does being In a foreign trade zone nullify state labor laws? because, we are often required to work up to 16 hours shifts without being given a break. The reasoning my supervisor gives is that in Title 50-2-103(h) states "...except in workplace environments that by their nature of business provides for ample opportunity to rest or take an appropriate break. "
What constitutes "ample opportunity" because at my post we are often so occupied with our responsibilities that we can not even use the bathroom for hours at a time.
also Tennessee state law requires that certain posters be posted in a prominent area and I have never once seen said poster
