I'm not normally of a paranoid frame of mind, but is this standard policy at that company, or could the employer be trying to get your boyfriend to quit (for some stupid reason) without having to actually fire him?
But to answer your question: I think it's unreasonable to have to work for more than 4 hours without a break. I'd have to be hard pressed to take such a job knowing that was the policy, but if I needed a job badly enough, or if I otherwise really liked or wanted that job, I'd take it and try to keep it.
