  • Is it legal?-Minnesota

    Knowing there is no overtime Law our company has been working us with outragous hours for the last three months. The department i work in the employees are getting frustrated because their family time is minimul during the week and the managers say everybody has to make sacrifices. People have quit in other departments in the plant but nobody has talked to us as a group. Is there anything legal the employees can do that will not hurt the company or possibly get people fired?

    Why do you think there is no overtime law? There is, but some types of businesses/employees are exempt from it. Having said that, though, Minnesota is not one of the very few states that requires days off at all.

    What type of business is this and what do you do there?

      By "no overtime law" this particular poster means no law giving him the right to refuse to work overtime without repercussions - check his previous posts.
      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.

          Assuming that you are properly paid for the hours you work, the employer can work you 24/7 legally.

          This is not intelligent employee management, but it is legal.
          Not everything that makes you mad, sad or uncomfortable is legally actionable.
