Select Maintenance > Labor > Minor Exemptions to access this function.
Employees younger than a certain age are required by law to adhere to certain break rule requirements. If the employee skips a required break, or is not allowed to take a required break, the Aloha POS system records a break rule violation. The term minor refers to a person under a certain age, depending upon jurisdiction and application, but is typically 16,18, or 21.
Minors who are married or who have a high school diploma on file are relieved from the meal break requirements. To prevent the Aloha POS system from recording a violation based on age alone, you can set up various exemption reasons using the Minor Exemptions function.
Note: Minor Exemptions work in conjunction with employee maintenance. The exemption reasons you create in this function populate the list of reasons to exempt a minor from minor break rules on the ‘Status’ tab in the Maintenance > Employees function.
