  • How many days in a row...? Minnesota

    In Minnesota, how many days in a row do I have to work before I get a day off? I am scheduled to work 5 (10) hours days and then 6 (8) hour days in a row.

    There are a few states that require one day off in seven, but I don't think yours is one of those.

      Agree, your state is not a one day off in seven state.

      Some occupations have a max. # of hrs. that can be worked in a row w/o time off such as airline pilots. The state of Mn. has a max. # of hrs. to be worked in a row for nurses, railroad workers & motor carrier employees.

      I don't know your occupation but I don't believe they are doing anything illegal in having you work 5 10 hr. days & then 6 8 hr. days (11 days in a row). You normally (with a few exceptions) can be required to work the # of hrs. & the # of days in a row your employer asks/requires you to.

            hunnie - I am assuming you're not a teenager. There are some restrictions on the amt. of time teenagers can work according to their age & job. If you are a teenager, please let me know & your age - otherwise, answer stands.
