Working 6 days a week

Renton, WA |

Is it legal for an employer to force you to work 6 days a week? If you don't, then you should find another job?

Attorney Answers 2


  1. Asking employees to work six days a week is not unlawful; however, you should be paid overtime for any hours over 40 per week that you work. Call the Washington Department of Labor & Industries, or go to their website, to find out what the rules are that apply to your situation.


  2. They can demand that, but they MUST pay you for it... appropriately.
