    In Missouri, they can require that you work 365 days a year. It would be foolish, but it would be legal.
    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.

      Das ist in der Doktor!

      Try working for a winery in California,
      You might not get a day off during the “ crush “,
      Which may run from July to November.

        What do you do?

        Depending on your job, and hours worked, there MIGHT be laws covering this. For most jobs there are not.

          That was the first paid job I had in CA. 1969 was a interesting year.

            It is legal in 48 of the 50 states. And for nearly all positions but those concerned with public safety (think OTR truckers, airline pilots, for example) and in some states, nurses.

              Also, there are limits on the length of time minors can work.

                some of the jobs can be like that as well with the time commitment being somewhat odd.

                    I "think" poster is saying that employers can have "odd" working hrs. but I'm not positive - certainly not worded clearly.

                      I am saying that sometimes the time commitments are varied and uncontrolled especially for various jobs that are substantially similar which is somewhat implicit and probably unnecessary it call out.

                      Yes, that is correct, thanks Betty3!

                        If my job was crushing grapes from July to November without a day off, I would probably 'wine' about it.
