unpaid breaks

if an employee clocks out for a break–not getting paid–can they be required to stay in the building

Yes, as an employer you can require that the employee remian on the premises for unpaid meal breaks in most states except California. As long as the employee is relieved of work duties, he or she need not be paid for the meal break.

Different rules apply if the meal break is shorter than 20 minutes.
