  • no days off Arizona

    my husbands employer wants to ask him to work on the weekends, in addition to his regular work schedule, monday through friday, 8am to 6pm.
    my husband is a manager, and he does get salary.
    my question is, is it legal to ask an employee to work 7 days per week, with no days off and no compensation for the time in arizona?

    Arizona does not have a one-day-off-in-seven law, so all employees, exempt or non-exempt, can be asked to work 365 days a year and it would be legal. Stupid on the part of the employer, but legal.

    If by salaried you mean exempt, there are no circumstances whatsoever in which he is entitled by law to any additional compensation over and above his regular salary.

    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.
