  • Working 9 days in a row is that legal? Utah Vermont Virginia

    I work for a large retail chain and I am being forced to work 9 days in a row is that legal? i asked my manager if i could have a day off on my 7th day of working and he said that the schedule was posted 5 days ago and its not his fault i didn't bring it to a managers attention before , so basically im being forced to work 9 days straight, plus im 6 months pregnant is this legal?

    Yes, it is legal. Neither Federal nor Utah law requires days off at any time. You could legally be asked to work 365 days a year.
    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.

        Only in a negative sense. The law does not provide for what an employer MAY do; it dictates what it MUST do or MUST NOT do.

        An employer MAY require that an employee work 7 days a week. The law neither requires it nor forbids it. Therefore, there is no law addressing the situation at all and the employer may make his own decision.

        It's not that I can show you a law that gives an employer permission to work you 7 days a week. It's that you cannot show me a law that prohibits it.
