    I am a civilian employee of a law enforcement agency...we work 10 hr days, 4 on 3 off, in a 24 hour a day unit. Can the manager of the unit 'make' an employee work more than 12 hours? meaning.... if I work my 10 hours shift during the day and a midnight employee in the unit calls out for their 10 hr shift can the manager then come to you and say 'you must stay and work the midnight shift'? Doesn't there have to be a break of so many hours between shifts and not being able to work more than a 12 hr shift?

    Without a collective bargaining agreement that says otherswise, yes, you can be expected to work longer than your scheduled shift (and paid for it).
    I find that the harder I work, the more luck I seem to have.
