  • California question

    I am currently working in a call center where i am working 5 days a week, seven and a half hours a day. In total I work 37 1/2 hours a week. They just informed me that now they are going to start forcing us to work an extra day with the same hours. So therefore I would be working 6 days with 45 hours. Can they force me to do this?

    They cannot 'force' you unless they put a gun to your head.

    But they can fire you if you refuse.
    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.

        I'll let someone who is more familiar with CA overtime laws address that.

            CA Labor Code 510 requires the payment of time-and-a-half, premium pay when employees work more tha 8 hours a day (you do not) or more than 40 hours a week (you do). Accordingly, you should expect to receive 40 hours straight-time pay and 5 hours, time-and-a-half, overtime premium pay when you work 6 days a week - 71/2 each day.
