Answer

8-Hour Rest Violation - when a user/driver has worked more than 8 hours within their workday.

If a break was taken in the midst of the 8 hours, a few things should be considered:

  1. When was the break taken? We recommend within 5 to 6 hours when the workday has started.
    • If the break was taken too early, you will be prompted to take a second break within another 8 hours.
  2. How long was the break taken? The system reads it by the second.
    • If the break was taken for 29 minutes and 59 seconds, then that is not the full 30 minutes.
