  • mandetory overtime, TX Texas

    Are employers allowed to make overtime (over 40 hours) mandetory for non-salary employees and if so what is the max?

    An employer can request that you work 24 hours a day, although not many do, and those that do usually have a system of 3 days on 3 days off.

    The only requirement is that you be paid for your time.

      Mandatory overtime is legal in all 50 states.

      There are only two states that have a maximum number of overtime hours that can be required and Texas is neither of them.

      There are a very few industry specific exceptions to this; most if not all have a public safety factor to them (airline pilot, truck driver).
      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.
