Mandated 6th Day

How much notice is required by a company before mandating a 6th day of work?

The federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) establishes minimum wage, overtime pay, recordkeeping, and youth employment standards affecting employees in the private sector and in Federal, State, and local governments. The FLSA doesn’t limit the number of hours per day or per week that employees aged 16 years and older can be required to work. So, there is no federal law that requires employers to provide any notice to employees needed to work additional shifts/hours.

Many states have enacted their own labor laws, including one commonly referred to as the One Day Rest in Seven Act (ODRISA). Most ODRISA legislation requires employers to provide one full 24 hour period of rest in each calendar week. It’s important to know if such a law exists in your state.

Though there may not be a federal or state law requiring advanced notice for additional shifts/hours, it’s still a common courtesy to do so.
