I am a financial accountant and I have a team of 4 which report to me.
I have noticed from the 3 staff members that they would work and eat at their desks. My understanding to do this means you don't have time to actually go out for a break, however they still go out for an hour's break. I have also noticed from some that when they are working and eating, they aren't 100% productive; occasionally some tend to go on the Internet and some are actually working and eating.
Personally I don't like the fact they they are taking 30-45 minutes to eat and work at their desk and still going out for a 1 hour break. I feel they having an extended break.
How can I put a stop to this? Is there anything under the workplace agreement where it stipulates, "when you have a break it's for an hour and that's it"?
