I work full time from 7:58 am to 5pm they tell me by law I have to take 1 hour break . And they say I can’t pass the 40 hours because they won’t pay overtime to me . But the other employees
I just want to know if it’s correct that they can do that or I can take 45 min only of break so they pay me .

From my initial research it appears that based on Federal law, s 30 min break is required; however, I am NOT a Florida attorney and DO NOT practice in this field so its best to talk to someone with the knowledge and expertise in this field. https://thelawdictionary.org/article/florida-labor-laws-about-break-during-work/ Hope that helps.
