The employee break room is a location that appears in the episode "Breakin'."
It is a very run-down area of the Krusty Krab that is hidden behind one of the walls of the restaurant. The door used to enter the break room is silver and has a yellow sign stating "Employee Break Room" in brown text.
There is a refrigerator containing many old foods as well as a bunch of other objects, those of which include a microwave, a shelf with supplies, a lightbulb hanging from the ceiling, a desk, a rolling chair, and a worn-out poster of a Krabby Patty. A tin foil disco ball can also be seen when SpongeBob starts his party.
Role in episode
Mr. Krabs forces SpongeBob to go into the break room because he started working on his break, and the labor authority officer gives Mr. Krabs a warning for that. However, SpongeBob actually has fun inside the break room, to the point where he starts a party which everyone joins.
When SpongeBob's break is over, Mr. Krabs barricades the break room, but Squidward is seen in the break room relaxing at the end, despite the room being barricaded.
