GAO commented on the propriety of paying overtime compensation for periods of lunch or rest which occur during overtime hours of work. GAO held that: (1) if the proper administrative officials determined that the rest periods were beneficial to the service, then overtime compensation for rest periods was appropriate; and (2) however, overtime compensation for lunch periods was inappropriate, since lunch breaks generally were noncompensable.
