Is it legal for my company to not pay for rest breaks and to make you work more than 7 consecutive days?
1 attorney answer
An employer can make you work as much as they want. This means they can schedule you for as many days in a row as they want and they can force you to work as much overtime as they want. The only remedy for being forced to work extra days is overtime pay. Because only the 30 minute lunch break is required, this means the employer can have policies for other breaks as well. You are only required to be paid for time actually working, so if you leave the premises, I don't see why it would be illegal to make you clock out. Nothing you mention here is illegal, but they do appear to be not great work requirements. Unfortunately, if you don't like the schedule, your only option is to quit, and if you quit, you will not be eligible for unemployment.
