How many hours can an employer make you work?


Answer by  kgrim (510)

An employer can only request that you work the hours you were hired to work. If you are a full time employee at 40 hours per week, they can only expect you to maintain that agreement. If they hired you as part time then the part-time hours should be honored.

You can work up to 16hrs per day if you have 11 hours resting between. They cannot make you work 16 hours for 3 straight days.

An employer can make you work at least 4 hours a day, at least 15 hours a week. To work more hours, that is your choice.

Hours and wage should be agreed upon be you accept the job. There is no magic number as to how long you are required to work. different professions require various amounts of duty hours. Healthcare professional as well as teachers, police, firemen tend to have long hours.

An employer can only make you work as many hours as you think you can handle. If you feel you are being grossly overworked and are not getting paid for it enough, you should rethink your job and see if you can find something that is better suited to your needs.
