My employer made me work the whole month of June without any

My employer made me work the whole month of June without any days off. What can I do and what kind off compensation can I expect?
Hello and welcome to JustAnswer.

I'm sorry to hear about your situation and hope I can help.

I need some additional information before I can assist you with your question.

Are you a salaried exempt employee or an hourly employee?

Have you been paid overtime, or is your employer only compensating you at your regular rate of pay?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
I'm hourly and have been paid properly. I understand there is a California law that says employers must give either one day a week off or four by the end of the month.
I'm not sure where you heard this, but unfortunately, there is no such law.

Unfortunately, as long as you are paid overtime and double time rates as required under California law, your employer can require you to work for a month without any days off.

You need to be compensated at a rate of double time, however, for all hours worked in exces of 8 on your seventh consecutive day of work.

I wish I had better news to give you, but I hope you appreciate a direct and honest answer to your question.
