    • Work situation
      Select this option to choose a work-related reason for ending your break early:
      • Customer or site issue
        As a security officer, you're ending your break prematurely to give a customer or site-related assistance. For example, an elevator malfunction happens at a customer's site, and help is needed. You decide to end your break sooner to assist.
      • NOT customer or site related
        This option isn't specific to a customer or a site, but it's still work-related. For example, as a security officer, your patrol vehicle gets a flat tire, which needs to be worked on or replaced to maintain your patrol schedule.
      • Other involuntary break end
        This is an involuntary reason not covered by the previous descriptions. For example, as a security officer, the police pull you over to check your license or health officials contact you to go to the nearest clinic to get your vaccination, and it's covered under your employer's policy.

Your voluntary or involuntary break choice is now logged for your manager.
