Working 7 days in a row Federal
I know that in California, non exempt employees cannot work 7 days in a row, they need a day off. Is this a Federal law as well?

- There is no such Federal law, and only a very few states have it. California does, but even in California there are exceptions to it.#1; Mon, 02 Apr 2007 11:25:00 GMT
CA Labor Code 554(a):
... Nothing in this chapter shall be construed to prevent an accumulation of days of rest when the nature of the employment reasonably requires that the employee work seven or more consecutive days, if in each calendar month the employee receives days of rest equivalent to one day's rest in seven.#2; Mon, 09 Apr 2007 07:15:00 GMT

Nope, and nope.#3; Mon, 02 Apr 2007 11:20:00 GMT
- The labor code does not exclude any class of employee (i.e. exempt, non-exempt), and as such, all employees, exempt or otherwise, are "entitled to one days rest therefrom in seven."#4; Sun, 08 Apr 2007 22:38:00 GMT
- Yes, they are "entitled" in California. Doesn't mean the employee couldn't agree to work 7 days in a row.#5; Mon, 09 Apr 2007 02:45:00 GMT
