We live in the state of. My son was hired by a pool company

We live in the state of Virginia. My son was hired by a pool company at a weekly rate of $650. His responsibility for the two weeks he worked for them was to get the pools opened and inspected for this weekend. The first week he worked for them he worked 7 days straight and put in an average of 12 hours per day for a total of 84 hours. This past week he only worked 5 days and put over 80 hours. Yesterday he worked a 19 1/2 hour day. He is not receiving any other compensation other gas money. He does not hire staff or fire staff. He did not sign any work contract. How legal is this for the company to work him this money hours without additional compensation. He quit this morning when he arrived home at 2am after working for 12 days straight.JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: This isn't about real estate.

For instance, I have to be at work on Saturday morning at 7am my shift ends at 5:30pm then I am on-call till 7am the next morning which I have to be back here(Sunday) and work another 10 hours then on-call again till Monday morning? Is this legal?

I need advice on how best to terminate employment with a

I need advice on how best to terminate employment with a large company that I have been with for 15 years. Texas. I have worked literally hundreds of overtime hours (all documented) over the years and have never been paid overtime. I am not a manager. This is all project-based work. The hours were required to meet various project deadlines over the years. I am salaried, exempt. I know there are ways for companies to avoid paying overtime, especially "highly paid employees". My goal is to be paid some type of severance even if this is not 100% compensation for all of the overtime. Reason for quitting: they have made the job so stressful that it is impacting my health. Other team members feel the same way (if that helps my case any).
