  • mandatory overtime? North Carolina

    so my job is starting this thing where they MAKE us work mandatory over-time they say its okay because our employee hand book doesn't say they can't do that. are they right can they really Make us work 2 hours over our schedule, also can they do it starting it the same shift you are already 6 hours into working?

    please let me know and where i can find it in the labor law thank you!

    Yes, they can. You're not going to find a "law". The law states what the employer must do and what the employer cannot do. Anything else is up to the employer.

    Your state does not have a prohibition against mandatory overtime (no state does) nor does your state require a certain advance notice of overtime requirements (no state does that, either).
    I don't respond to Private Messages unless the moderator specifically refers you to me for that purpose. Thank you.

      In all 50 states, they can tell you that you have to work mandatory overtime when you are putting on your coat to go home.

      They can do this because there is not a law that says they can't.
      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.
