HOW MANY HOURS CAN MY EMPLOYER MAKE ME WORK A WEEK ?

Thank you for using JustAnswer!

 

Can you please provide more background information of the circumstances surrounding your questoin?

Customer: replied 7 years ago.
60 TO70 HOURS PER WEEK. MANDATORY SATURDAYS
What's that nature of your occupation?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
MECHANIC AT A AUTOMOBILE AUCTION
Do you have a written employment agreement or contract?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
NO

There are no laws which provide a "maximum" amount of time an employee can work in a week.

 

The facts you describe suggest that you are an "at will" employee. This means that your employer can schedule you whenever s/he wants. Failure to work the scheduled time can result in discipline, up to and including discharge.

 

It may seem to be unfair or unjust. However, that is the very nature of "at will" employment. You work at the will (or whim) of the employer.

 

Good luck and best wishes! I hope that you find this information to be helpful and this answer to be ACCEPTable!
