Re: Is Lunch break meant to be only for lunch :) ?

@Sandgrounder Yes, my assumption was that since I am absent at work (logged off) during this 105 minutes then it could be counted as my mandatory unpaid lunch break. And in this case I am not obliged to log off for another 30 minutes since I want to get back to work and not to seat another +30 minutes longer.

OK, then it seems that HR is just keeping to the law. It's not about the amount of time you are logged off, it's about the time you are not working and having some down time.

We're all guilty of scoffing a sandwich at our desks over lunchtime but sometimes it's just nice to get out and have a wander.

Presumably your course needs concentration and brain-power and is work related so the company would be negligent if they counted that as your lunch-break.
