Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
Welcome! My name is Maverick. Please give me a few minutes to analyze and/or research your inquiry and I will be back.
What State is his job located in?
Okay, please let me take a look at PA law on this and I will be back...
A few states limit the number of consecutive days that an employee can be required to work. Unfortunately, PA is not one of them. Illinois, Wisconsin and New York have laws that require each employee to receive one day off in each payroll week. These are referred to as “one day rest in seven” laws.
If, however, there is a vacation policy or a company policy that speaks to either the vacation issue or the number of consecutive days worked issue, then those policies must be enforced equally and there can be no discrimination based on race, gender, national origin, religion, age, or disability. Also, there can be no retaliation from the employer if your husband tries to stand-up for these rights.
I know this is not the answer you wanted to hear, but I am assuming that you are wanting a professional and honest answer.
You are welcome.
