The only law regulating this is the DOT regulations, which would allow her to work 10 hours or 15 hour shifts after 8 hours off, with a maximum of 60 hours in 7 consecutive days work or 70 hours in 8 consecutive days work. Here she is working 59 hours in 7 consecutive days and not comping close to the maximum daily limit.
