A little background. Florida labor laws do not have laws governing the payment of overtime and weekend work, unless you have a contract or a union. You told me you don’t have either. Florida follows the federal laws or labor standards and overtime and hours. In Florida and under the Fair Labor Standards Act, (FLSA) the law governing wages, work during weekends or extra pay for working during weekends is a contractual or management decision. Florida does not currently have any laws stating that the employer cannot make its employees work on weekends, except as the overtime laws apply.
The law is clear that all covered, non-exempt employees, which you are, must be paid at least one and one-half times their regular rates of pay for the time worked over 40 hours in a workweek, if the weekend hours add up to more than 40.
So, yes they can make you work weekends, unless there is some discrimination as to who is being picked to work weekends, then you would have a claim under state and federal labor laws.
