    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?

    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.

    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.

    I agree. But I would never tell someone NOT to check with the DOL. If it will make the poster (and our notwirelesscarrier heckler) feel better to hear it from them, by all means, go ahead.

    Most of us do.

    There is nothing in the law that shows it must be a set date. So, technically, an employee could have a day off, work twelve days and have another day off.

    Jasmine,

    I would call NYS Dept. of Labor and get clarification on that for it appears to be a matter of interpretation.

    Most southern expressions are just to confuse Yankees... they really don't mean anything.

    Heck, they really think that "Yee Haw" is an actual expression of intense delight.

    Why, that would take all the beauty out of our language... make it "ugly enough to make a train take a dirt road".
    I grew up in South Carolina. I had a neighbor that loved saying "dead dogs don't bite". I never really understand her point, but it stuck with me after all these years.

    I just enjoy hearing your witty replies. And I'm not disappointed this time either.

    cyjeff is correct!

    It's not 7 consecutive days. It's 1-in-7 for each workweek. As long as you have at least one day off per week, the 1-in-7 rule has been satisfied. This is assuming that you are employed with a firm that is not exempt from these rules.
