What happens if I'm working on the Sabbath?

I'm a Seventh Day Adventist. Can my employer force me to work Saturday, which would be overtime?

Your employer is under no obligation to accommodate your religious habits. If you do not feel that working on Saturday is appropriate, find another position that does not require Saturday hours.

It depends on the local laws. Call your local labor board and see if they can help you with this, since the law varies so widely from place to place.

Your employer has no obligation to excuse you from working a religious holiday or religious day. Also your employer has no obligation to pay you anymore than any other employee for the religious day. If you do not want to work these days, you need to find an employer that will excuse you from work those days.
