    There are no fines or fees for asking questions of a government agency.

    If the answer is anything different than what most of us have said, we would certainly be interested in learning about it. Laws and the interpretation of laws change.

        Last i knew in NY as long as you have 8 hours off between shift you can work 13 days in a row. but they have to give you that 8 hours off in between. my mom was a manager and that is what she had said when i asked her. you can call the department of labor and ask them as well.

          First of all, Kim, this post is from back in October. Please pay attention to the dates of the posts you respond to. This poster has not been back since. He was told at that time that he could check with the DOL; given the nature of this thread I think it quite unlikely that if the DOL told him anything different than we have told him, he would not have come back to...shall we say, explore that option?
          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.
