  • 4x10 shift with mandatory overtime

    I work for in a warehouse on a 4day, 10 hour shift schedule. Due to some recent mismanagement on the upper level, we have been getting a lot more work per person then is normal.
    The questions I have are:
    Can they require us to work over our 10 hour shift period?
    Can they require us to work extra days?
    Is there any restriction on the number of hours that can be scheduled in one work week?

    1.) Yes
    2.) Yes.
    3.) No, not in your state or under Federal law.

    The above presumes that no legally enforceable contract or CBA specifically says otherwise.
    The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.
