Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
Good evening and thank you for entrusting me to assist you. My name is ***** ***** I will do everything I can to answer your question.
Can you please tell me in what state you are located? I very much look forward to helping you on this matter.
In that case NM Stat § 50-4-30 (2013) governs the answer to your question. That statute states:
"Daily maximum hours of employment; exceptions. No employee other than a fireman, law enforcement officer or farm or ranch hand whose duties require them to work longer hours, or employees primarily in a stand-by position, shall be required to work for any employer within the state more than sixteen hours in any one day of twenty-four hours except in emergency situations."
I hope that you find this information helpful. Please do not hesitate to let me know if you have any questions or concerns regarding the above and I will be more than happy to assist you further.
