E. VDT Breaks
Where an employee uses a VDT or other keying device for at least one hour, he/she shall receive a 5-minute non-VDT work break for every hour of utilization. Such breaks will be in addition to regularly scheduled rest periods and will be for the purpose of performing assigned work not requiring use of the VDT or other keying devices. This does not preclude employees from receiving rest breaks when suitable non-VDT work is not available.
