Can I be forced to stay after my shift to take an unpaid lunch break?

I work 8 hours everyday and very often do not have time to take my lunch break. I know its required that they offer it to me and I know I have the ability to take my break, but I have not. Recently however I have been reprimanded and forced to stay after my 8 hour shift to take a 30 minute unpaid lunch break, then go home. Is this allowed?
