I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today.
Generally, there are no state or federal laws that dictate required shift length for adults. There are two caveats: first, the employee needs to be paid for all hours worked. If 14 hour shifts put them over 40 hours/week, they're entitled to overtime. Second, North Dakota requires giving employees at least one day off in a seven day period. But there isn't any limit on shift length outside of those two things.
