Mandatory overtime days

In New York, how many consecutive days can an employer force an employee to work?

There is no federal law that limits the number of hours or days that an employee age 16 older may be required to work. However, several states including NY have adopted legislation requiring employers to provide employees with at least 24 consecutive hours of rest in a calendar week. This law is often referred to as ODRISA, One Day Rest in Seven Act. There are limited exceptions to the law such as certain dairy businesses and seasonal employers in minimally populated areas.

Though there may not be a limit to the number of hours in a day an employee can work in NY, employers must consider the impact of long hours on employee morale, productivity and safety.
