I guess that depends on your employer. If I asked you to work on the weekend and you refused, I would simply fire you, regardless of what your schedule is.

When you were hired, did you tell them that you would be available to work anytime? I mean sometimes they ask me that, and i just yes them so i can get the job. Then they go ahead and ask me and im like "oh crap". lol

I mean, if its extra money, why not just do it. I used to tell a boss of mine thati had a side job that i do on the weekends. Either i really had cakes to make, or i made something up lol

you would want to check your LNI website for details,but genrealy speaking if you work at least 40 hours in a week they cannot demand that you work more. They will have to pay you overtime at the rate of base hourly rate + 1/2 base hourly rate per hour over 40. This is good because you get more money.

However, depending on agreements you signed, the employer can demand that you work outside your regularly scheduled shift as long as doing that doesn't put you over 40 hours. lets say for example he wanted to have you work on saturday (being 1st day in a pay week :meaning week starts for work on sat and ends on Fri) for 3 hours, than he would arrange to have you take time off on another normally scheduled day like you would leave 3 hours early on monday.

Yes Your Employer can ask and require you to work weekends unless you have religious obligations/restrictions that keep you from working.

Even with that they can Schedule you to work one of the weekend days if the business necessitates it.

It depends on the exact nature of your work agreement. They can always *ask* even if it's not your regular schedule; the question is whether they can *require* it - and that's not a question that can be answered with the information at hand. If you're not supposed to work weekends, get it in writing; employers in general are famous for abusing their position of advantage.

My suggestion - if you *can* work the weekend, do so as a gesture of goodwill; but make it absolutely clear - in writing, if need be - that this is not to be expected on a regular basis. If you really *can't* work the weekend, let your employer know why - in writing, and preferably as nicely as possible.

Oh, and if they don't pay overtime as legally required, DO NOT HESITATE to complain to the state labor board.

Of course they can. That's why they employ YOU. Sounds as if they were desperate.
If your salaried, you better. Hourly, just say no.

Seriously, I say dooooo it, as long as its OT.

Yes the employer can ask you to work overtime and he can also have you come in mandatory over the weekend according to the labor board if the employer needs you extra time he can make you come in. If you take your issue to the labor board theyll end up telling you that if you dont want to work overtime to look for a 40 hour job. Sounds unfair but thats how it is.

Well, yes, they technically have the right to ask you to work whenever. You should try to negotiate with him/her--don't argue or anything, just calmly explain why you can't work on weekends.

He can ask, but you don't have to say yes. If your work schedule when you signed up was mon-fri 7-4 then that is when you have to work. Everything else is extra. If you accept you had better be getting some good benefits such as overtime. Then again if you had a flexible schedule then it would be perfectly reasonable to work the week end. Where it stands you are perfectly legit in refusing to work the weekend.

He CAN ask.....
and you can refuse.
You did it last year and you are still working there.
Guess he gonna have to hire part timer rather than pay you for overtime.
Sounds like he presenting you opportunity to make some extra money.
You haven't been crying the blues about finances have you?

Every weekend? Or every here and there?
Of course they can ask! It can even be mandatory! Try working in a factory for awhile. You don't have a choice. During heavy production you may have to work 10 hour days M-F PLUS weekends!

Depends on whether you are independently wealthy.
If so, tell him to pack sand.
If not, you might remind him that your work hours are this and will you be getting overtime or is this a permanent change or a temporary thing. TALK like a grown-up.
He can ASK whatever he wants. Whether ou comply is complex. Is there anyone else he can ask? Do you love your job? Are you well paid? Does he ask a lot of you without paying extra?
Weigh carefully, since there are lots of people out there looking for work-wekends or otherwise.

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No



laughinggiraffe2003
He is allowed to ask you but maybe you mean do you have to work ? The answer to that is whatever is written into your contract, if your contracted to work weekends then yes you have to if its not in there then no you don't have to work.

Unless it states somewhere in a company handbook or it was stated from the beginning when you interviewed with them that they wouldn't ask or require you to work weekends, then they can ask you. Having weekend obligations, religious affiliations, health restrictions and the like can help you avoid being forced to work weekends. You might notice that people who are willing to work weekends might also receive more perks and promotions and are probably more tired and stressed out than you too. A lot of people work only part time for an employer these days in order to avoid becoming slaves to the company. You should make sure they have to pay you overtime if you work over 40 hours a week. I'd think twice about working for a company that puts working for them ahead of being with your family, keeping yourself healthy, etc...
