    Is it legal to make Overtime manditory? And if so, is there limits to the amout per day or per week that can be required? Thank you for any help you can provide.

    Yes, it is legal. And no, I don't know of any weekly limit. Very few states have one, I would think they would have mentioned it here if there was one.
    I don't respond to Private Messages unless the moderator specifically refers you to me for that purpose. Thank you.

      With very few industry specific exceptions, mandatory overtime is legal in all 50 states.

      There is only one state (Maine) that limits the amount of overtime an employee can be required to work. (California does not limit the amount of overtime that can be worked, but prohibits the employer from disciplining or terming the employee for refusing to work over 72 hours per week.)

      In all other states, there is no limit to the amount of overtime that can be required, and the employee can be disciplined or termed for refusing.
      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.
