My employer works me 7 days a week ranging anywhere from 4-8

Customer Question

My employer works me 7 days a week ranging anywhere from 4-8 days sometimes more withno off days, when I ask for days off she gets upset. Legally can I be work 7 days a week?
JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?
Customer: California
JA: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?
Customer: It's security so it was full time then part time now back to full time
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: Yes also when my boss wants you to cover or work a day that you not scheduled, if you tell her know she tries to be vendictive and take your hours away. Can she do that? I also have tried going over her head but her boss covered for her and said her actions were valid. I was later informed by a colleague that they were a couple. That part is just word of mouth.

So Unfortunately yes they can make you work those hours as long as they are paying you appropriately and also any overtime.
