She is allowed to work the Friday for you as well. The only law regulating this is the DOT regulations, which would allow her to work 10 hours or 15 hour shifts after 8 hours off, with a maximum of 60 hours in 7 consecutive days work or 70 hours in 8 consecutive days work. Here she is working 59 hours in 7 consecutive days and not comping close to the maximum daily limit.

I know there is an il law stating that an employer cant work an employee 7 days, with that being said if us knowing she is working another job and is going to work 7 days is that still legal?
Expert:  John replied 1 year ago.

Yes there is such a law, but a) you are not working her the 7th day, and b) any employee can voluntarily work the 7th day - they just cannot be required to work it.
