    Is Their A Law On How Many Hours They Are Allowed To Work You Per Day And Per Week? I Was On 12hrs. Which I Worked 3 Days-36 Hrs One Week And 4 Days-48 Hrs The Next Which I Got Paid For Lunch And .95 Cents Extra For Working 12hrs. But They Put Me On 5 Days-8 Hrs A Day. The Problem Is That I Not Only Lost .95 Cents Extra Per Hr And Now Not Paid For Lunch But I Never Work 8 Hrs. It Is From 9 1/2 To 11 1/2 Or More Which Is Making Me Mad Because I'm Working More But Getting Paid Less.is Their Anything I Can Do About Them Do This?

    Overtime

    Some of the answers to your question is dependent upon the state in which you work, your job and whether you are exempt or non-exempt. Please provide that information so that I can assist you.

      Wages

      The http://www.dol.gov/esa/whd/ website should be able to answer your questions. I am not sure the exact working agreement you have but this may help...

      http://www.dol.gov/esa/regs/compliance/whd/whdfs23.htm
      "Unless specifically exempted, employees covered by the Act must receive overtime pay for hours worked in excess of 40 in a workweek at a rate not less than time and one-half their regular rates of pay. There is no limit in the Act on the number of hours employees aged 16 and older may work in any workweek. The Act does not require overtime pay for work on Saturdays, Sundays, holidays, or regular days of rest, as such."

        Overtime

        Some states require overtime for hours worked over 8 in a day.

          hours again

          so as long as the company pays you time and a half for hrs over 40 in a week they can work you as many hrs a day as they want too?

            Mandatory Overtime

            In most cases, yes. However, some states do place a maximum on hours for certain positions. Also, some states require overtime for hours worked over 8 in a day, along with additional protections.
