    According to Federal Law, as long as you are paid OT for every hour worked over 40 in a single work week, no.

    Extra pay for working weekends or nights is a matter of agreement between the employer and the employee (or the employee's representative). The FLSA does not require extra pay for weekend or night work or double time pay.

    Default Illinois

    Illinois has a law called the, "One Day of Rest in Seven" Act. It requires that employers must get permits for employees to work seven days of the week, assuming that the employee wishes to work that seventh day. It doesn't provide for double time but it does require that the employee must want to work the seventh day.
