Bentching on company time


A worker who is paid by time (ie by the hour or day) is required to be extra-careful not to waste time. If he eats, he is not permitted to recite the Birkat haMazon (blessing after meals) beyond the core three blessings.

[This assumes that one is working at a job for which he is only permitted time to eat. However, one who is working at a job in which it is understood that he has a given time for breaks is obligated to recite the full Birkat haMazon during that break.]

(Code of Jewish Law Choshen Mishpat 337:20)

Have a great day,
