Can my employer make me work 5 consecutive 8 hour days if Im only part time?
I just started a part time, seasonal, job, but I also have school. because of that I cant work two days out of the week. I work from yesterday 'til Monday, all 8 hour shifts. The week starts over again so it isnt technically over my state's legal limit of 34 hours a week, but its 40 hours consecutively. Are they still allowed to do that?

they can if you let them. you're a student with limited means, so it's unlikely you'll sue your employer. put your foot down and tell your employer you can only work certain days. if you have to, call in on the days they schedule you that you said you couldn't work. if you don't say anything, they will continue to abuse you. if they won't fix the scheduling, quit. that's ALWAYS your ace-in-the-hole!

When I was in high school I worked seven days a week, 6PM to 6AM, from February to June. If you have a problem with it, contact your state labor department.

Yes, they can do that.

If you are a minor you are usually limited to a 6 hour day any day that you also attend school. If you aren't a minor, or on vacation from school, no laws are being broken.
