  • TX Retail Labor Laws - Seven Consecutive Days

    Hello! I work in a retail clothing store in TX. I have already researched the labor laws for TX and found this:

    ยง 52.001. RETAIL EMPLOYER. (a) A person who is an
    employer may not require an employee to work seven consecutive days
    in an establishment, the business of which is selling merchandise
    at retail.
    (b) The person may not deny an employee at least one period
    of 24 consecutive hours of time off for rest or worship in each
    seven-day period. The time off must be in addition to the regular
    periods of rest allowed during each day worked.

    Okay, well, my employeer has scheduled me for fourteen days straight now without a day off. I guess my question is, what should I do?

    Contact your state DOL.
    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.
