  • mandatory scheduling?

    we are in the midst of training new personnel, but they are coming along slowly which means our current emplyees are having to work alot of overtime.

    the front desk manager has made one of the staff members work the night audit the last 2 months for 6 days straight with only 1 night off. he says there are no laws that says he can't do this, especially when we are short staffed.

    is this true? the employee is very tired and ready to walk

    What state are you in? Not all states have "day of rest" laws.
    I am not able to respond to private messages. Thanks!

        Based on what you posted, I don't see anything illegal being done here.

              FYI, while there are some states (NC is not among them) that require one day off out of every seven, no state requires two. A six day a week schedule is legal in every state.
              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.

                Also FYI, in some states one day off out of every seven just applies to certain
                types of establishments & in every state (ie Ca.) doesn't technically mean they can't
                work 7 days in a row. They just need in each calendar month the equivalent of
                1 days rest in 7.

                  Also a good point.

                  Baileyboy, I of all people am not unsympathetic to your friend's situation. I worked as a night auditor for eight years, and at least part of that time was also holding down a full time 9-5 job. But the manager is correct when he says it is not illegal to require a six night a week schedule.
