Employees at my current job usually take an hour for lunch. Whether it's used to eat lunch, go home and check on kids or walk around is up to the employee. This break isn't written down as a rule in any employee handbook, but everyone takes it myself included.
Occasionally, due to scheduling conflicts, we'll have end up with a staff meeting or other internal meeting during the lunch hour. When this happens my boss will usually buy lunch for the office. I think this is very generous and greatly appreciated, however I realized that by buying us lunch and having meetings at this time we are effectively working through our lunch break.
Usually when this happens I skip my lunch break in response since it seems like the lunch break has been effectively used, but is that necessary?
Does workplace etiquette dictate that I should skip my normal lunch break in this situation?
