  • Shift Change - 7 Hours between old / new shift New Mexico

    My employer recently had a shift bid. The Shift change takes effect on sunday.

    Here is the situation:

    Saturday I work from 5 pm till 2am Sunday morning
    My new shift starts at 9am Sunday morning

    Thats only 7 hours from the time I get off of work till I have to be back...

    My question is... Is this legal, don't they have to allow me atleast 12 hours between shifts?

    With very limited exceptions for public safety-related occupations, no, there is no law that requires them to do so.

      Well that seems highly unethical!

      So much for the dream of workers rights!

        Unethical is probably stretching it. You asked if it were legal. Yep.
