    For general occupations, your misunderstanding is correct; there is no such law, either federally or in your state. Just to be sure, what type of work do you do?

        I don't know that industry, but the only prohibition there MIGHT be are OSHA guidelines. Maybe, but not likely.

        I recommend working the time now, then calling OSHA afterwards.
